World Cup and Olympic champions Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly and Tisha Venturini-Hoch will team up with the Santa Clarita Blue Heat professional women’s soccer club to conduct a three-day training camp in Santa Clarita this December.
Carlos Marroquin, owner of Santa Clarita Blue Heat women’s soccer club and Soccer Planet in Downtown Newhall, says it took him two years to convince Mia Hamm to commit to the Santa Clarita soccer camps.
“She only goes to one town in California per year,” Morroquin said, “so this is huge for our community.”
Every camper will receive a Nike Soccer Ball, Nike Camp T-shirt and autographed card by Mia, Kristine and Tisha, according to the Soccer Academy’s website. In addition, every camper will have the opportunity to take a picture and receive an autograph from Mia, Kristine and Tisha on the last day of camp.
