AYSO United teams were busy over the off season. A lot of them went to the Ft Lowell Shootout in Tucson, and the 18UB Shockwave went to Las Vegas, NV to compete in a Showcase Tournament. There was a lot of futsol and indoor soccer had by all. It has been a busy off season. Check out the fun and success Bolts, Impact, and Shockwave had below.
We love to hear about the adventures of the teams. If your United team is out at an event or playing a game and have good pictures, we would love to see them and feature your team on this site.
Coach Ralph Romero's 11U Girls team, Bolts, decided to have some fun in the off season representing AYSO United in Albuquerque's annual Twinkle Light Parade on December 2nd.
The team decked out the truck and trailer with tons of lights, and had fun at a player's home getting hair, makeup, and costumes done as they dressed like the Grinch, Whos from Whoville, and other Dr. Seuss characters. All this led up to the annual parade down Central.
It was a great time and a fun team-building experience! Ralph and his team have invited everyone to join them next year. I’m sure we will be hearing more about it in the fall.
Coach Don Hewatt took his two teams 11UG Impact and 12UG Strikers to the Ft. Lowell Shootout in Tucson this January. That's a really challenging tournament that begins with a fun night that begins with the Olympic Parade of Teams and includes Olympic games featuring soccer skills.
The team brought a lot of creativity with them and got dressed up as donuts for the Olympic Parade of teams. Not only were they honored with a first place prize for the Crazy Hair Contest, they had players who placed 2nd in the Olympic games of shootouts, relay and golf.
After getting off to such a fun and successful start, they got a chance to show what they could do on the soccer field. If you've seen these teams play, you won't be surprised to learn that both teams went on to place 2nd in their brackets at the tournament.
Congratulations on a very successful tournament!
