Lang and Matheson will be coming to town with members of Canada’s national team in advance of the 30 September Women’s International Friendly match at BMO Field in Toronto, ON.



“As a team, being involved in grass roots development is very important to us,” said Kara Lang. “We’re hoping to create a fun and memorable experience for the kids while also raising money for the Haitian national team.”



All ages and levels are welcome to take part in the event. The clinic will focus on three areas: passing/first touch, dribbling and 1v1 moves, and small-sided games. Participants will then have the opportunity to get photographs and autographs with the players. In return, participants will be asked to make a small donation to the Haitian national team.
