Leopards Partner with Special Olympics for One-Day Clinic
October 31, 2019
The Wentworth Athletics community partnered this past week with the Special Olympians of Boston Public Schools for a one-day soccer clinic hosted at Sweeney Field.
Throughout the day, Wentworth student-athletes worked together while demonstrating leadership and comprehensive learning to a group of 30 Special Olympians through passing drills, scrimmages, and shooting challenges.
Wentworth's partnership with the Special Olympics, which officially launched in August of 2011, serves to improve the lives of Special Olympians through their involvement with division 3 student-athletes.
"It really hits home to see how much our contributions mean to the Olympians," said men's soccer junior Noah Niles. "They inspire us as much as we inspire them."
