A Special Thank You
To each of our coaches and assistant coaches !!
Thank You for stepping up and filling the duty
of what is to be such a great role & memory in a child's life!!
A quote from US Youth Soccer Coaching Manual:
"Many great players can trace their success to the coaching that they received at an early age. We hope that you, the youth soccer coach, will one day look back with pride at the opportunities you created for learning and enjoyment. A supportive, child centered, positive experience in youth soccer is vital to the growth of our sport.
