Four Events Including Play-off Showdown vs. KC Wizards (10/06)
The SPFSA sponsored its third night @ Giants Stadium, Saturday, October 14th, to see the Red Bulls nip the KC Wizards, 3-2, for the final play-off spot. This year, more than 800 players and family members enjoyed these nights. Earlier in the day, Red Bull goalkeeper coach Des McAleenan helped lead the SPF goalie training @ Park Middle School. McAleenan has worked very closely w/ US World Cup goalies Tim Howard and Tony Meola. The native of Dublin, Ireland was colorful, funny and very informative.
Red Bull activities continued Sunday afternoon @ Memorial Field w/ a clinic for House Program coaches run by MLS Head Training Coordinator Adrian Moses who conducted a lively program emphasizing effective and fun training ideas for the young player. Finally, Red Bull forward David Arvizu attended the House Training Academy for autographs, photos and instruction for all 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders.
