Three teams from the American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO), Region 44, Spring Select program serving Sunnyvale, have been selected to represent Girls Divisions 10, 12 and 16 in the National Games Competition in Knoxville, TN. The teams, made up of talented young ladies ranging from age 8 to 16, have been offered the opportunity to participate in a week long, Olympic-style ceremony and competition, meeting and playing other teams from all across the United States.
It is an expensive endeavor. The girl’s families have funded multiple tournaments, travel, special coaching, soccer field fees and more. The families have done fund raising activities like candy selling. But, the Knoxville, TN tournament is costing Sunnyvale families more than what chocolate sales can bring in. On top of what it cost to get to and stay at the Knoxville games, team expenses like van rentals, gas, insurance, coolers, shade structures (it’s hot in July in Tennessee) among other costs are adding up.
