Try something new for Black History Month
All students and staff at Lethbridge College are welcome to pop by Val Matteotti Gymnasium A for soccer or to learn a game called clean touch. Clean touch was a game School of Justice Studies instructor Ibrahim Turay played when he was growing up in Northern Sierra Leone. Thanks to last year’s Black History Month activities, Lethbridge College Students’ Association staffer Tanner Marcer now knows how to play this game, and he’ll be helping to introduce it to others. Clean touch is described as an American football-type game played without a ball. There will also be soccer action. The games are open to everyone, regardless of whether they’ve ever played before.
Tuesday, Feb. 11, 4 to 10:30 p.m.
