Clover Bar Soccer Program History
The Clover Bar Soccer Program came into existence in 2005-06. Under the Principal Roxy Harbourne, the school began a soccer program designed to allow students who are passionate about the sport of soccer to pursue their individual goals while in an academic environment in the Sherwood Park & Strathcona County area. It was and still is a skill based program where individuals develop and excel at improving their skills through a soccer curriculum designed to meet their needs as athletes. The program began with approximately a dozen students, to a class between 60-70 students per year.
Over the years the Clover Bar Soccer Program has had various people and coaches come in to work with the students. The range of guest coaches have been current Women's Team Canada players, F.C. Edmonton coaches and players, numerous U of A and Grant MacEwan varsity athletes, and members of Sherwood Park Physiotherapy (to discuss knee injury prevention).
Many students both male and female, have moved on to pursue soccer at the collegiate level, whether it be local, provincial, national, or NCAA.
