We are looking to add a couple of U17 players to our Fall 2013 squad. Most of our girls play high school soccer so we let them focus on that in the fall and play a six game season after fall school sports end. Over the winter and spring we continue to play in leagues and host friendlies to keep fit. It’s their team and they still enjoy playing but they also have other interests so we make things flexible. If you are in an inflexible situation and are looking to still play and keep in shape, contact us.
Beginning in August, we will train and play on what will be a first-class facility and one of the finest synthetic surfaces in the area being built in Huntingdon Valley next to Lower Moreland High School. The 115yd X 75yd field will have Musco sports lighting and a state-of-the-art FieldTurf Revolution surface that will meet NFHS and NCAA standards and is a product that has received FIFA’s highest recommendation for synthetic field installation. It was designed to mimic the characteristics of the finest natural fields to deliver optimum vertical ball rebound, ball roll, shock absorption and rotational resistance.
With most of our girls playing high school sports this fall, we are taking a break from league play until November. In the meantime, we have adopted two sister teams of younger players and our girls will be training and mentoring them this fall while also building volunteer service hours for high school.
We lost in the championship game but had a great tournament showing in a top bracket – and had a lot of fun. I did some checking… on our way to the final we defeated the 12th ranked team in Virginia and we lost in the final to a top ranked team from Maryland. It was an impressive effort by our girls.
Right now there is an opportunity for additional players for the spring season leading into fall 2012 play. Please contact coach Rob DeMartinis for more information and to arrange for an informal tryout with the team. Phone – 267.702.6224.
We believe that high-level soccer training can at the same time include a high level of fun for players. Six of our players earned starting positions as freshman on varsity high school teams. Our focus is on the advancement of skills, quick tactical decision-making, strength and movement training for player safety, and on creating a supportive team atmosphere. You will not find a nicer team of girls anywhere. Girls born between August 1, 1996 and July 31, 1997 (or up to 1 year younger in special situations) can be considered for the team.
We had a good run in the first indoor session and a strong playoff performance but lost in the final. The girls have a lot to be proud of and have come back from many challenges this season.
