Alexander’s Experience at SHINE!

Over the summer, I worked at a program called SHINE! This is a program affiliated with Super Soccer Stars, a program which helps young kids learn soccer. At SHINE! however, they take it a step further, instead focusing on younger kids with physical and learning disabilities. I worked as an assistant coach, and throughout many weeks of working with the kids, I have done a variety of tasks, including setting up drills to demonstrations to just being supportive of the kids. My job has allowed me to grow close to all of the kids that I have worked with, and it is very rewarding to see their huge progress over such a short period of time.
