The Aurora High School girls soccer program hosted its youth soccer camp last week.

The camp has been nicknamed the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Cleats,” which actually started approximately nine years ago under that namesake back when head coach Domenica McClintock was coaching at Crestwood High School.

When she was hired at Aurora, McClintock brought the youth camp idea with her.

“This year’s turnout was phenomenal,” McClintock said. “We had a combination of all levels and the focus is on building connections between our high-school program and the community.”

McClintock said it all begins with an important message.

“No matter how old, young, big or small the player, the game of soccer serves as a point of connection between all who play,” she said. “We hope that through this minicamp girls have the opportunity to create a lifelong bond with a fellow soccer player.

“We, as a coaching staff, believe these younger players connect with our high-school players and have something to connect with and chase after on their soccer journey.”
