Phoenix Soccer Club, Excel Soccer Academy, Created a Team for Underprivileged Boys. Then the Unthinkable Happened.
Phoenix, AZ, May 19, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- A local youth soccer team from Excel Soccer Academy set out to create an elite program for kids that can’t afford it. This is a tough, demanding program that teaches more than the game. Excellence in attitude, sportsmanship, and high character are required for participation. Their 14 players, ages 14-15 years old, must keep academics first and, families must support their sons. This hardworking group has achieved enormous success on the field by winning the AYSA State Cup Championship and wants to go to US Youth Soccer Regionals held in Seattle, Washington June 19-25 to represent Arizona. With a total trip cost of nearly $15,000 – these boys will need the help of others to realize this dream.
Although the boys are local kids trying to compete against the elite teams - they have unbelievably won the Arizona State Championship. Over 90% of these boys attend Title I schools. Although these boys may be financially disadvantaged, they are determined to achieve high academic success.
The success on the field has been an amazing accomplishment for these local kid.! To realize their dream they are working hard to raise funds to get to regionals, without the help of others, they may miss this chance.
