Freestyle Soccer Lessons
As the Silver Key Club is not able to hold its usual fundraising events on campus this year, club members have come up with creative ways to raise money for the Silver Key Bursary, an annual financial-assistance award that recognizes student involvement. Silver Key member Emma Westenberg will offer individual freestyle soccer lessons on Zoom for $15/hour. Freestyle soccer is a relatively new sport that focuses on creative ball control. If interested, send an email or MIO to Emma Westenberg.
