On May 2, FC Wisconsin Eclipse hosted a free youth clinic at FC Wisconsin Soccer Park, with two Chicago Red Stars professional players coming to Milwaukee to meet young soccer players. Red Stars defender Jackie Santacaterina and defender Rachel Quon talked with the players and coached them in basic techniques in heading, 1 vs. 1 attacking, and air control.
Both Santacaterina and Quon played for Eclipse Select (IL) as youth players, and were coached for a time during their youth career by FC Wisconsin Eclipse Director and Red Stars Assistant Coach Christian Lavers. Santacaterina won 2 USYS National Championships as a U16 and U17 player and went on to star at the University of Ilinois. Quon won 1 USYS National Championship as a U15 player, and went on to win an NCAA National Championship at Stanford University. Both Quon and Santacaterina are in their second year as professionals with the Red Stars, and Quon was recently called up to the Canadian Women's National Team.
