Dear CFC South parents and players, we hope the Fall season has been going well.
As many of you know every summer, I have been taking teams over to play in the Gothia Cup in Sweden which is often referred to as the “Youth World Cup” due to the 90+ different countries that send over teams. The Gothia Cup is by far the biggest soccer tournament in the world and for any player that lives for soccer this will be a trip they remember for the rest of their lives. The teams that are put together are not exclusively from CFC however due to my relationship with the club all CFC players/families are guaranteed a spot. Every year we take both boys and girls teams over to represent the USA. The youngest age group this year will be 09 boys and girls and going all the way up to 02 boys and girls. Teams travel as FC International. This year I am reaching out to the CFC South teams first.
In years gone past we have started the process of putting the teams together just after Thanksgiving and working through March/April. However due to the feedback we have had from previous families we are going to start the process a little earlier. The main reason for this is to allow players a few extra months of fundraising. In addition to this we have had strong interest in putting together teams that could really make a push for the gold medal over there. What I plan on doing is starting with the top level of the branch before reaching out to other branches and clubs in other states. Last year on top of CFC we had players join us from 15 different clubs and in total we were represented by players from 16 different states.
If this is something you think you may be interested in this year please contact me for more information at email@example.com and I will forward you all trip details
