The US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup offers teams the challenge of experiencing different types of play by competing from state to regional to national levels. The Presidents Cup provides teams with a progressive, competitive experience that highlights competition, camaraderie and community.??

 

For the Under-16 Girls FWSC 00 Academy Strikers, National Presidents Cup represents a significant opportunity and a matter of overcoming obstacles.
 
FWSC is one of the oldest clubs in Indiana, and head coach Andy Stout makes sure the girls on the team are aware of the heritage from which they are playing for.
 
As one of the few Fort Wayne, Ind. teams to compete in a US Youth Soccer national tournament, this opportunity means a lot.??“I don’t think our girls fully understand that yet,” Stout said. “For those of us who grew up playing and coaching in the area, it’s a huge deal.”??
 
FWSC is also made up of girls with high grade-point averages, who care about their community and who have experienced significant medical issues.?
 
?“They really have come together as a family,” said team manager Todd Gilpin. “They lift each other up. It’s a culmination of a lot of hard work.”
 



Prior to Nationals,  Boiler FC player Caleb VanHoosier said, “With Harrison going to state, sadly they lost, but they set the bar for everyone here to do a lot better in the offseason so they can help their high schools out,” VanHoosier said. “We really want to put Lafayette on the map at nationals so people understand Indiana is a soccer state. We want to get Lafayette known for its soccer ability.”

Indiana Soccer wishes the BEST OF LUCK to both teams competing today! Bring home victories!
