The George Mason women's soccer team headed out into the community last week to take part in the Road DAWG event at Mason District Park in Annandale, Va. The Road DAWG (Don't Associate With Gangs) is a one-week summer camp for middle school youth who are at risk of substance abuse or gang involvement.

The Patriots led a two-hour camp with the youth that involved games such as handball, World Cup and soccer scrimmages. A video recapping the event can be seen above.

Road DAWG:

  • Connects kids with after-school programs in their schools and communities.
  • Looks at individual/family needs and links to resources.
  • Continues contact with youth and families.
  • Includes follow-up activities throughout the year.
