The camp, which will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., is open to all youth soccer players, including boys and girls. The clinic will be conducted by the MSU Soccer coaching staff, as well as all players from the 2003 Bulldog Soccer squad. This is an outstanding opportunity to get high-level training.

"We are excited, as always, to be able to continue to help in the progress of soccer within the community," said Mississippi State head coach Neil McGuire. "There are a lot of people giving a lot of their personal time to help soccer grow, and we want to be part of that."

Those planning on attending the clinic should RSVP to coach McGuire at nmcguire@athletics.msstate.edu and arrive at least 10 minutes beforehand for organization. More information on the clinic can be obtained via the Internet at www.StarkvilleSoccer.com Last minute cancellations due to inclement weather will also be posted at that website or by calling (662) 615-4184. Please dress appropriately for the camp, complete with shin guards.

The clinic will be followed by Mississippi State's second annual Alumni Game at 1 p.m., pitting former Bulldogs against the current team. State's alumni dropped last season's inaugural matchup by a 3-1 count.
