Craftsbury Academy Girls Soccer
At the end of August, the Athletic Director at the local high school, Craftsbury Academy, contacted Green Racing Project athletes in desperate need of a soccer coach for the fall season. With only a few days to go before preseason was scheduled to begin, two skiers agreed to run the team for the season. They are working five to six days a week with a squad of committed girls to prepare for the Division IV high school soccer season in Vermont, which kicked off on September eighth. From there, they will coach the girls through the end of the 14 game season in mid-October. Although not directly related to the environmental mission of the team, this project is a good example of one of the other goals of the Green Racing Project and the Craftsbury Outdoor Center: direct outreach projects with the people where we live in Northern Vermont.
