Pittsburgh Riverhounds hosting Special Kick Clinic

Mary Pickels

Pittsburgh Riverhounds will host the Watson Institute’s seventh annual Special Kick Clinic at Highmark Stadium, inviting children with special needs and their siblings to take to the field.

The event will held from noon-3 p.m. Sunday.

“We are grateful to the Riverhounds organization, PJ Dick, and our other sponsors for partnering with us to continue offering this unique event to children with special needs and their families,” says Barry Bohn, Watson Institute president and CEO.

“The support of our generous sponsors makes it possible for us to offer this fun event free of charge to the community,” he adds.

The Special Kick Clinic partners participants and their families with a volunteer who will accompany them throughout the day’s activities.

The Riverhounds set up soccer stations with drills carefully adapted to accommodate the needs of each participant. Players work one-on-one with the participants as they complete the drills.

Riverhounds mascot Amo joins in, participating in the soccer stations alongside the kids.

To register as a participant or to volunteer for the Special Kick Clinic, call Lisa Falk at 412-749-2851 or visit thewatsoninstitute.org.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
