Parents won the right for the 07 boys to shave my head. I had to keep it for a week. Thanks for the mullet. I don't miss it.

We took an impromptu family photo at training one day. I think we are going to need a different way to take these photos in the future in order to fit everyone in!

Our Mini Dribblers continues to be one of our most fun (and exhausting) programs. We love playing with these little players!

Indoor Training
Indoor Training

It was an incredibly long winter, so we took to the new indoor facility to train indoors in early spring.

Tournament Success
Tournament Success

Our teams had a lot of tournament success this spring, not only in the form of trophies and wins, but also in the way we played. We pride ourselves in our club-wide style of play. It makes it better for the kids because it helps ensure consistency from season-to-season and from team-to-team.

D License
D License

The club hosted a D license course this spring that coach Paolo and I had the pleasure to run. It was awesome helping 4 of our own coaches, and over 20 other coaches from around the region take their coaching to the next level.

LOOKING BACK

LOOKING FORWARD

It's been a crazy whirlwind ever since early spring not only for me personally with travel, camps, coaching courses, and more, but for the club too.

 

Thank you to everyone that helped make all of our programs this spring such a success, and to everyone who believes in us and we are doing. Together we are changing the soccer landscape for the better.

Here's looking forward to this fall and beyond!

2007 AND 2008 BOYS GO TO UTAH

A group of our 2007 boys and 2008 boys went down to Utah separately (Salt Lake and Park City respectively) on consecutive weekends to compete against some of the top teams from Utah and the region.

 

Both teams competed extremely well, played against very tough competition, and learned and improved from the experience, plus they had a ton of fun and made memories that will stick with them for a lifetime which is what it's all about. We're proud of our teams for testing themselves against some of the best.

6th ANNUAL GALLATIN ELITE SUMMER CAMP

Ever since our first year running the camp, we set out to deliver a high-quality week of soccer that is not only fun, but challenges players too. Ultimately, we didn't want to host just another camp, we wanted a camp that players got something out of. We think that developing, learning, and competing is fun.

To do this we staff the camp with some of our own awesome local coaches, and bring in other high-quality coaches from around the region. This year was no exception and our coaches consisted of college coaches, US Soccer A license coaches, ODP Region staff coaches, US Soccer coaching education instructors, former college athletes, a current professional soccer player, and more.

It seems that this formula is resonating with many others as well because we had just shy of 200 players attend the camp this year which is incredible. 

Thank you to all of the players and coaches that attended and made it memorable, and a special thank you as well to the week of nice weather. We hope to see everyone (and the nice weather) again next year!
