The LaFayette Recreation Committee has been busy with evolving the nature of youth sports in LaFayette. Earlier this year residents approached the city of LaFayette about an interest in expanding offerings of youth sports in the city. City officials listened and have been continuing their efforts to grow youth sports offerings in the city. The latest was revealed on Monday evening at the city council meeting.
Councilman Neal McCurdy presented a request to city council members on Monday to allow a 1-day soccer clinic to be held in the city of LaFayette. The date and time of the clinic is still unknown at the time, but council members did approve the clinic.
The clinic will be conducted by Melissa Martin director of Opelika Parks and Recreation. A fee of $25 will be charge to each participant, but with that fee participants will receive a t-shirt, their own soccer ball, and soccer supplies.
Before a date will be set for the clinic ages will be need to be determined for the clinic based upon interest. Officials hope to have the clinic open to a wide range of age groups. More information will be provided soon on the clinic.
