NEW Girl’s Community Roots Workshop Series

Interview with the mind behind the program:

Jack Rozier, Girls Director of Coaching

“In the East Bay, we are fortunate to serve a community where movements for equity and justice live in our streets and schools. The inspiration for “EBU-Bay Oaks: Girls Community Roots” stems from countless conversations over the years with coaches, teachers, parents, and youth that require more from life than the status quo. These role models inspire me to take risks, knowing that the effort is rooted in a shared vision. The place of youth development institutions like schools, after school programs, and sports organizations in our society is to create an environment where our future leaders can safely practice how to fail, be vulnerable, be gracious, and triumphant.
My goal for this workshop series is that our girls will know that their network of local community allies and resources runs deep! And that we as adults expect their leadership in shaping the future. Success would mean that each participant has formed or deepened a relationship that will encourage them to take action in striving for success as self-satisfaction in their lives as soccer players and as citizens.”

Why the name “community roots”?

The thought was connecting Bay “Oaks,” Roots (as in roots of an oak tree) and Community.  The purpose of the series is to connect the girls to allies and resources in the community – extending their network, their roots

Where at Raimondi Park?

This will depend on the session and weather: stands, enclosed tents, or field. Children’s Hospital will have physical exercises as part of each session. Soccer Without Borders will likely be a field session as well. The purpose of Raimondi as a location is to ensure that our girls can participate in this workshop series and our sister-programs in the Winter Advanced Footskills & Finishing Clinics. We hope that by offering early and late sessions that mirror the Winter Clinic schedule we can ensure our girls can participate in both opportunities and demonstrate consideration to family and carpool needs.

Will players need to RSVP/register?

Registration is free but the capacity for each session will be 15-50 girls.
