Over the past month the squad heading to IMG Academy for this years SYL national finals have been reporting for practice and strength & conditioning classes 4 times a week in preparation for what hopes to be an experience of a lifetime.
It has been important we settled the players back in to the training habits we encourage here at KSA, along with getting them familiar with our game style and what is being asked of them individually says Coach Scott, the teams head coach and KSA’s Assistant Director.
With this squad being built up of players who have aspirations of playing college soccer, it has been made clear to them that this trip will give them the exposure that some of them may need to achieve this goal with playing at the next level. With College coaches present along with numerous national team scouts, it is exciting to see what this annual national tournament has to offer.
I am extremely proud of this group of girls, the commitment and mentality shown towards getting better each session as well as them showing a great deal of passion in taking the coaching on board is something that will help them in such a highly competitive environment while down in FL says “Coach Scott”. With Josh Scott being a head coach and National ODP scout for United Soccer Leagues at there annual National Camp, he is excited to see if any of the KSA girls can earn a spot in the 2014 national camps.
With some of our girls already committing to play college soccer, we still have some very talented individuals on our team who are 2014, 2015 & 2016 commits.
On behalf of KSA’s directors, coaches, staff and parents we would like to congratulate this talented group of girls on such an exciting journey so far and all the best wishes and success for the trip, as the girls are set to leave early Wednesday morning. We would also like to give a big thank you to Donna Hatmaker who is the teams team manager.
Announcements on the teams sponsors will be coming shortly along with a picture of the official sponsor t-shirt that is dedicated to the team of winning the 2013 South Atlantic Conference and making the SYL national finals.
“Good luck is where preparation meets opportunity”
