OCU Senior Kim Uetrecht Joins NTC Soccer Squad
CIRCLEVILLE, OH - OCU senior captain Kim Uetrecht is spending her summer on the NTC Phoenix women's soccer team. The National Training Center is a 300-acre sports, health, fitness and education campus which is unique not only throughout the state of Florida, but also throughout the world. The NTC unites world-class sports and athletic facilities with a hospital, medical office, community college, and four-year University. A full array of athletic trainers, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, exercise specialists, personal trainers, coaches, and instructors provide a world class training environment for the individuals who work-out and train there.
Uetrecht will have the opportunity to train and play alongside the top players and coaches in women's soccer. "It is an offseason program that will catapult her game to the next level," said OCU Head Coach Josh Murton. "This relationship with NTC could benefit the entire soccer program moving forward. The opportunity to train with the best in the world each summer makes a big impact."
The NTC Phoenix is a program under the wing of the NTC. The soccer program is in a developmental stage but plans are in place to take this program into the Women’s Professional Soccer League one day. These players have volunteered to be trained and educated in hopes to move this program into the WPSL.
