They had a tough season but worked as a team as taught by their great coaches. It has been a special season with such fabulous girls working so hard to achieve the championship. We are such proud parents. We appreciate all the volunteers it takes to put on the AYSO! Cheers go out to the exceptional Coaches and our wonderful team MOM who keeps us on schedule with her passion and devotion!
