For a team with 8 players new to the club, the U13 RC team is quickly coming together and progressing as a group - adapting quickly to the style of play at the club, and enjoying applying their new knowledge of the game. Coach Andy Lee comments “their performances in games have been really enjoyable to watch.”
There are a variety of different personalities in the team, and a number of leaders are beginning to emerge as well. The players are competitive and train hard, and it is because of this that they have continued to develop quickly.
While this team is business as usual on the field, they have a different tone and unique sense of humor off the field. This becomes more obvious once you hear the nicknames they have for each other including Kitty Kat, Violent, Char-char-bi-dar-dar, Lemon, and Lil Elf. Lil Elf is even known for busting out a rap prior to games in order to motivate her teammates. This goofy group is competitive off the pitch as well, challenging each other to virtual games on their iPhones in their off time.
If you want to watch this group compete, swing over to the FC Wisconsin fields in Germantown this Sunday, October 25th at 6:00 PM to watch them take on INFC. The U13 RC crew will also battle Polonia at home on October 31st, at 9:00 AM.
