KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The University of Tennessee women's soccer team encouraged young kids to play soccer on Sunday.
The soccer team is spreading the message to that anything is possible. The annual "Kicks for Kids" camp brings together coaches, players and people of all ages, many of whom have down syndrome.
This is the fourth year that UT has partnered with the Down Syndrome Awareness Group of East Tennessee. The team says it's one of their favorite events they put on every year.
"I think it's really nice that we have the opportunity to do this," Meghan Flynn, a UT senior and left wing on the team, said. "We definitely get as much out of it as they do."
Players say they love how the kids come to life, with smiles on their faces, playing on the field during the drills.
The Lady Vols finish their spring season next weekend with a game at West Virginia.
