Seasiders give back to community

LAIE, Hawaii – BYU-Hawaii men's and women's soccer looked to give back to the community and its supporters by holding a clinic for the American Youth Soccer Organization and a fireside over the past week.

With almost 200 children in attendance on Saturday, the Seasiders were able to conduct drills and teach skills to aspiring soccer players.

"The kids were enjoying themselves," BYU-Hawaii head coach Dan Dümmar said. "All the athletes participated and I heard a lot of positive feedback. It was just for service to the community.  We wanted to let the community to know who we were and try to help out and get a connection there."

Following two wins at the Academy of Art in San Francisco on Tuesday, the Seasiders headed to the California Berkley Institute to hold a fireside.

"Missionaries and investigators were present along with lots of young adults from Berkley," Dümmar said. "Several young adults told us it was 'the best church meeting they had ever attended.' Such a great experience."

Afterwards Dümmar also received a note of thanks from their host of the event. The Seasiders continue their road trip on Thursday at Notre Dame de Namur in Belmont, California.
