Bright sunshine greeted the more than 70 special team players and their buddies who participated in the South Texas Youth Soccer Association TOPSoccer Spring Festival at the S.T.A.R. Soccer Complex in San Antonio on Saturday, March 13.   
Organized by STYSA Assistant DOC Neal Ellis, Terry and Jackie Thompson with Northeast Youth Soccer Organization-NEYSO, Alamo Heights Fort Sam Houston Youth Soccer-AHFSH, and Ed Sakiewicz and Diana Driggers of Star Soccer Complex, special team players of all ages and ability levels from across the state enjoyed a day of soccer fun.
The event was kicked off with welcome messages from Gordon Hartman, Founder of Morgan’s Wonderland and Dr. John Tomas the Assistant Director of Coaches for US Youth Soccer in front of a crowd 200 Athletes, Buddies, Parents and Volunteers.
 
Bob Wilde, STYSA ODP Coach and Coaching Education Instructor and Dr. John Thomas, US Youth Soccer Assistant DOC got the players going by having them kick their balls with their buddies. Then they lead the players and buddies through a series skills demonstrations, activities and games where the players performed and practiced push passes, knee passes, various types of ’freestyle passes’ and other fun ball activities and games. 
 
The field activities concluded with a series of games with the players moving around the field kicking balls through a grid of cone goals to see how many goals they could score. Participants and buddies congratulated each other’s efforts with cheers and applause. Dr. John Thomas added to the fun by demonstrating several special clapping styles including his marshmallow, rain, and lightning bolt claps.
 
Dr. John Thomas the Assistant Director of coaches for US Youth Soccer and Dave Force from Morgan’s Wonderland closed the ceremonies and ended an event that was a great success.
