Two-time Olympic gold medalist Mia Hamm demonstrates an exercise for more than 100 boys and girls at the UWSP soccer fields on July 23.
Hamm, along with fellow professional soccer retirees Kristine Lilly and Tisha Venturini Hoch, were featured at the Team First Soccer Academy, held at the university July 22 and 23.
The clinic, overseen by UWSP head coach Dawn Crow, was designed to focus on fundamental soccer skills for young people ages 7 to 18.
Hamm, Lilly and Venturini Hoch have combined for five Olympic Gold Medals, five World Cup Championships and 12 NCAA titles.
The three also combined for four-straight Hermann Trophy recipients with Lilly winning in 1991, Hamm in 1992 and 1993 and Venturini in 1994.
