Send Youth Soccer Champs to Utah
One for all, and all for one! Chelsea Academy is more than a team, it's a brotherhood. It's a safe place to excel, take risks, and to belong. In spite of financial limitations like minimal practice fields, and limited access to high level teams, these boys won the 2017 Washington State Presidents Cup.
They are set to play Regionals in Utah, but they need help covering travel costs. Each player will need $210 in order to cover hotel costs alone.
This opportunity is one they will carry with them for a lifetime. Their commitment to soccer is the key to keeping them on track: inspiring them to keep good grades and stay healthy. These young men deserve a chance to play against their equals in Select soccer. Please help us to level the playing fields!
We have achieved our $8,000 goal and now our players can go to Utah and focus on the game. The families asked me to tell you that this means so much to them.
Any extra funds will go toward any unexpected costs on the road or future soccer opportunities for the team: perhaps Nationals in July!
I'd like to thank our new supporter Geoff Nelson for encouraging me to set this up and then spreading the word.
I'd like to thank Aaron Byers for
telling Geoff about our boys.
I'd like to thank Carleen Johnson for telling our story so well on KOMO.
Lastly, I'd like to thank every one of you for your donation and making this trip possible.
Utah, here we come!
Several of the boys got together this afternoon when they heard about your support. They went to the field to go running and practice shooting. They want to be in top condition for Utah!
Their dream is to make it to the Nationals in July. Winning Utah is the first goal.
Thank you so much to all the good people who took time today to bring such inspiration to these deserving young men.
Our hotel costs have been covered! We are now updating to accept donations to cover transportation and meals.
The boys were exhausted after training last night- getting ready to make you proud!
On behalf of our players and their families, thank you, thank you.
I just want to say thank you to everyone who donated to the team and thanks for all the support..
Tacoma Pierce County Soccer, and South Tacoma United are so appreciative of the generosity that was shown to this team and community. We are so proud of this group of young men and their families. Best of luck!! Tracy Murphy TPCJSA Treasurer
