Soccer player becomes coach
By Camilo H. Smith (Pocono Record)


Lee Clewell travels 45 minutes from Wilson Borough to give his sons a chance to get soccer lessons with Dario Villafana.

It's the basics, getting a feel for the ball that the elder Clewell hopes will help his son Benjamin, 18, when he goes out for the team at Northampton Community College in the fall.

Like the Clewells, other kids come to benefit from Villafana's training on a pitch perched high in Mountain View Park.

It's a small, reasonably priced soccer club that teaches fundamentals with an eye on building a large training system under the team name FC Ulindi. The "FC" stands for "football club" as the millions of soccer fans worldwide have come to know.

The program started as a free clinic offered through a local church, but slowly, it's becoming more structured with weekly practices.

I was there about twice to take my son to EPYSA camps. Real boonies but good for the soul, if that is what you want.  But it is nice in the summers though. Coming from DC, I had to go thru some hilly country also.

I had to file something in Easton and unlike many other jurisdictions they don't have online filing so I had to trek out there in person.  Nice country drive but that traffic on I-476 was trying man nerves.  I leave with plenty time to spare and barely reach in time.  I get it time-stamped with literally one minute to spare.  But the people seem real down-to-Earth and pleasant.
