Loggers Hold Clinic For Local Junior High Students
TACOMA, Wash. – The Logger crew teams began the new semester with a mini-clinic for some local junior high students on Wednesday. The visiting students toured the campus and received instruction on proper rowing techniques.
Puget Sound head coach Marsa Daniel and former coach Michael Hagman set up the one-day clinic this fall when Hagman began working at the Tacoma School of the Arts. Hagman brought his P.E. class from the Tacoma School of the Arts and also brought a class from Stewart Middle School to join in the clinic.
"This is an opportunity for the student-athletes to get to work with these young people and they're excited about it. They love teaching," said Daniel. "It will also be an opportunity for our student-athletes to get to share some of their experiences."
The Loggers jumped at the opportunity to host the clinic and expose a new generation to the sport of rowing. Novice coach Stephen Souvall led the clinic with the student-athletes providing additional instruction to the students.
With the start of classes earlier this week, the Loggers will begin training for their season, which begins in March.
