Cal South to Present "Coaches for Kylie" College ID Clinic, June 2-3
All proceeds go to Kylie Doniak and Family to Help with Medical Costs

On February 3, 2012, University of Texas midfielder and Cal South ODP alumnus Kylie Doniak was struck by a drunk driver in downtown Austin as she was walking through a crosswalk. The accident left Kylie with a massive head injury, a broken neck, a broken collarbone, a punctured lung, two broken bones in her leg, several broken ribs, facial lacerations and severe road rash. She was taken to intensive care, where the swelling of her brain caused doctors to place her in a medically induced coma. After several operations and a move to a hospital in California, Kylie began to slowly recover and undergo rehab for her brain injury. In mid-April, she finally returned home after over two months in medical care. She is now walking and talking up a storm once more, but still has a long way to go to full recovery.

To help out the Doniak family, Cal South will present a special college ID event for players called "Coaches for Kylie" on June 2-3 on the Cal State Fullerton campus. The event will be run by numerous top college coaches who have all graciously donated their time for the clinic. Players will be run through 11v11 scrimmages, technical and tactical training sessions, and participate in seminars on sports nutrition, NCAA recruiting rules, video analysis and sports psychology.

The cost of the two-day clinic for girls aged 12-18 is $220. All proceeds from registration for this event will go to help Kylie Doniak and her family with the massive medical costs incurred by the accident.
