Night of fun at Soccer 101 for Women

By Mark Norris

FC Dallas held its annual Soccer 101 for Women presented by AdvoCare on Wednesday night and the evening was filled with fun and some learning.

Attendees who had pre-registered for one of the coveted spots arrived in time for complementary food and drinks provided by Legends.

The crowd was then split into five groups who rotated through the various stations in FC Dallas Stadium.

Kevin Hartman and Ugo Ihemelu answered questions in the FC Dallas locker room about what it's like to be a professional soccer player.

Daniel Hernandez and play-by-play announcer Mark Followill explained the rules of the game and also took questions.

Ricardo Villar and assistant coach Marco Ferruzzi hosted a soccer skills challenge on the field for attendees.

Kelly Jacobson, wife of Andrew, discussed what it's like to be a spouse of a professional soccer player.

Athletic trainer Skylar Richards explained player fitness and tips for attendees who also play sports.

At the end of the night everyone received a gift bag for attending and a lucky few won door prizes like autographed memorabilia.

Gift and raffle items were provided by AdvoCare, Planet Tan and yellow tail - all proud partners of FC Dallas.
