For the Dinami Me Athletismo (Power with Sports) program to develop soccer programs for girls in Greece. The program sponsors five three-day weekend soccer clinics for players and coaches in several sites throughout Greece. Members of the women´s national team visit local schools to help advertise the clinics and encourage girls to register. Each clinic includes basic skills and techniques as well as two guest speakers, accomplished athletes and/or health professionals, who communicate the importance of developing a sound mind and body not only for competition but for life in general. Beyond basic skills, the clinics offer teamwork strategies and leadership techniques.
