Thursday, May 29, 2008

Nashville --- Tennessee State University softball coach Joyce Maudie as well as players Royesha Goodman and Jalisa Bradley have been selected to participate in the NCAA’s YES clinic.  The clinic will be held on May 31-June 1 in Oklahoma City in conjunction with the softball college world series


The NCAA organizes and conducts Youth Education through Sports (YES) Clinics, which are offered at various NCAA championship sites. The clinics are designed to teach girls and boys the "fun" in fundamentals of sports and life.


Boys and girls ages 10 through 16 can participate in drills and receive sports skill instruction from NCAA coaches and student-athletes like Maudie, Goodman and Bradley. Maudie will serve as a clinic advisor while Goodman and Bradley will act as clinicians in the instructional sessions for the participants.


"It is a great honor to be chosen to participate in the YES clinic as representatives from Tennessee State University,” commented Maudie.  “Royesha, Jalisa and I are looking forward to this outstanding event.  It will be a great learning opportunity and a lot of fun to work with these young, enthusiastic softball participants.”


Participants will also learn conditioning tips to improve athletic performance as well as learn life skills and sportsmanship to help them become a successful student-athlete.


“An added perk is attending the college world series,” Maudie continued. “The atmosphere in the stadium is incredible and we will be able to watch some outstanding softball games and learn from some of the top softball players, playing for the best programs in the country. I am certain that it will be a memorable experience!"
