You were one of the only soccer organizations with the courage, willingness and ability to provide an amazing futsal experience for all of the kids during the middle of a global pandemic. The experience was world class and it was amazing to watch all of the kids grow and improve their skillset throughout the season. The academy environment is a great approach to player development and my daughter thrived in what you were able to provide her with not only in her continued technical development but also her confidence and growing love of game. Thanks so much for the wonderful season and experience. We can't wait to do again next season.
