ThunderPup clinic scheduled for Monday

The Colorado State University-Pueblo athletics department scheduled the soccer ThunderPup clinic for Monday, October 6, 2008.  The clinic will be held from 5:30 - 7 p.m. at Rawlings Soccer Field located on the CSU-Pueblo campus.

The ThunderPup Club, presented by Wendy's, is open to all boys and girls in southern Colorado who are in the 8th grade and below.  The cost to participate is a one-time fee of $10.00, which includes an official ThunderPup Club t-shirt, free admission to attend all remaining ThunderPup sports clinics throughout the year, and an official ThunderPup Membership Card (free admission to all CSU-Pueblo home games and discounts at all Pueblo, La Junta and Canon City Wendy's locations).  Membership forms can be obtained at any Pueblo, Canon City or La Junta Wendy's locations.

The ThunderPup Club was begun in 2005 to create an environment of learning and sportsmanship for children in the southern Colorado community.  The CSU-Pueblo athletic staff and coaches are dedicated and committed to providing a positive atmosphere about sports and academics.  The two-hour clinics will teach children the fundamentals of each sport and the importance of academics, as well as provide the chance to meet the ThunderWolves student-athletes and coaches.
