“We are always excited to represent our club in our own community against local competition and we love that our players were able to play in front of families and friends,” Academy Director Ivan Militar said.
Academy sides played against competition an age above their bracket, which provided the teams with a physical challenge to pull off results, which they did.
“I’m proud of our Academy’s performance and how we executed our style of play,” Militar said. “It’s always beneficial to play against older players and these tournaments allow us to do so.”
