Side by side in sports – Scoring a Goal for Inclusivity

On November 9th, The American College of Greece, in collaboration with the American Embassy, the Athens Comics Library and under the auspices of the Institution of Culture, Sports and Youth of the Municipality of Athens, a special athletic event, “Scoring a Goal for Inclusivity”, took place, in order to promote gender equality in sports.

Distinguished guests, such as Jennifer Grubb, former international soccer player in the National Team of the U.S.A., and current owner of Cairn Consulting LLC, as well as Tara Koleski, former professional soccer player, and current coach of UWS FC Arizona and Coaching Director at FC Arizona, contributed to promoting the concept of gender equality, with a quite intriguing coaching approach.

Pierce students and Deree students trained together and played an exciting game, under the guidance of the two guests, the Pierce Physical Education teachers, and the Deree Women’s Soccer coach!
