On Thanksgiving weekend, we had the opportunity to travel down to the Disney Soccer Showcase in Orlando, FL with four of our FC Copa Girls National League Teams and enjoy great soccer in some warmer weather. With this pleasure came great responsibility to perform, not only for ourselves but for all the teams that may follow in the near future. We were able to bond during our team meetings, team outings (lunch or dinners), play against tough competition from all around the country and showcase the style of soccer we train diligently back here at home. We also volunteered at Give Kids The World Village ( during our time there to help those less fortunate. The number of college coaches who attended our games demonstrates that our program has been and continues to lead players in the right direction. We are beyond proud of our young ladies and coaching staff and are extremely thankful to all the families that allow us to work with them. #THECOPAWAY.
