MPPS students have been lucky enough to participate in soccer clinics run by Melbourne Victory players over the past few weeks.
On Tuesday, 10th of October, two of Australia’s top female soccer players shared the secrets to their success with female students at the school during a recent visit to Gippsland.
Matildas champions and recent Melbourne Victory W-League recruits Casey Dumont and Laura Alleway put the girls through their paces during a short training drill at the school ahead of a pre-season W-League friendly against Adelaide United in Morwell on Saturday 21 October.
This was followed by a Q&A session and autograph signing.
It was a great experience for our girls and the players gave them an insight into how they have got to where they are, and how important hard work is to reach your goals.
The following Friday, players from both the men's and women's teams visited the school to run a clinic for soccer fans in grades 2-6, followed by a meet and greet afterwards. By all accounts, it was a massive success.
