Girls and boys ages 5-12 are invited to enjoy a fun-filled morning honing their soccer skills and learning new ones during the free Youth Soccer Clinic presented by Women’s Premier Soccer League team Lehigh Valley Tempest June 16 at SteelStacks. The event, which is part of the FIFA World Cup ™ SoccerFest & Viewing Party, will take place from 10-11:30 a.m. and is open to all skill levels. Anyone interested in attending should sign up in advance at lvsoccerfest.com.

Lehigh Valley Tempest’s largest soccer clinic to date, the SoccerFest youth clinic will include a variety of activity stations featuring hands-on instruction by Tempest players and coaches, as well as staff and players of Lehigh Valley United. Children will be organized by age and ability to provide every participant with the best possible experience and learning opportunity.

Other highlights of the day include soccer activities like open play and soccer tennis, as well as activations by partners like Philadelphia Union & Bethlehem Steel FC, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer, Lehigh Valley Youth Soccer League, Soccer Magic and others.

Families looking for a great way to treat dad on his special day can arrive early and enjoy the Father’s Day Breakfast at the ArtsQuest Center starting at 8 a.m. Following the clinic, the public is invited to catch all the action from France on the large, 25-foot-wide LED screen as the U.S. Women’s National Team takes on Chile for a noon match. Plus, the Lehigh Valley Grand Prix is offering the opportunity to jump in high-speed Go-Karts and cruise around the half-mile racetrack set up on the campus as part of the SteelStacks Grand Prix.
