Phoenix On Tap for AKFC Teams
With the 2010 Coerver® Coaching Centers of Excellence in full swing in both Anchorage and Wasilla, a number of AKFC players continue to meet weekly to work on their skills and technique. Good thing, too, as there is plenty on tap for AKFC teams this spring.
Things kick off in mid-February with three younger squads heading for the sun of Phoenix to take part in the 2011 Desert Classic, hosted by SC Del Sol. Taking part this year will be AKFC 00 Aurora, AKFC 99 United and AKFC 00 United.
The following weekend the AKFC 98 United boys will arrive in Phoenix for the prestigious President’s Day Tournament. Currently the #2 ranked boys tournament by GotSoccer, PDT is necessarily a very difficult tournament to gain entry into, and based on their exceptional record against top competition across the western United States, and in Sweden last summer, the AKFC 98 boys were even granted early acceptance. Well done, boys!
Following Phoenix in February, there will be a slight break for AKFC travel teams, though most players will still be participating in the Center of Excellence-Elite. After our USYS squads return from their trips to Far West Regionals, we expect to see several AKFC teams on the road again, including the AKFC 01 Aurora girls, recent semifinalists (Telemundo [Gold] Division) at the Las Vegas Mayor’s Cup.
