As many of you already know, we will be sending a U19 soccer team to Gothenburg, Sweden to participate in the Gothia Cup- The World Youth Cup. This is an amazing opportunity for these young people to experience a new culture, play some highly competitive soccer, and represent our area and country in a major international event.
Participating in their opening ceremony, carrying our American flag, will be an experience these young men will remember for the rest of their lives.
As you can imagine, getting 20 people to Sweden plus tournament costs carries a high price tag. The Sweden team planning committee has quite a few fundraisers in the works with our first being our hopefully biggest- Karaoke Contest + Silent Auction on March 25th. They are also selling raffle tickets, collecting scrap metal and more. We hope to be able to count on our club as a whole to help get this team to Sweden- as if your own child was going because who knows? Someday they might be! Please consider donating to the club for the Sweden team and we look forward to seeing you at the fundraisers!
