U9 Futsal

We went undefeated. Scoring the most goal in the league. We were unstoppable scoring 101 goals as a team, but what impressed me the most was we only received 18 goal. To be honest my focus was to work on the defensive side. Teaching the boys how to defend in our new 3-1 defensive shape. 

These boys naturally are attacking minded players so we did well on we. I was really happy to see how these little ones learned our new diamond formation.

U14 Premier – Fundraiser for BUSC Scholarship Fund

Charley and Edgar – U14 Premier – Fundraiser for BUSC Scholarship Fund

Hello, our names are Charley Jetter and Edgar Campos from the U14 Premier team. For our leadership project, we raised money for the Ballistic Scholarship Fund. Our goal was $250.

To raise this money, we decided to sell things that you might find at a snack shack, such as gatorade, water, chips, bars, and donuts. We went to Costco to get these supplies.

Soon after, we got some teammates to help and met at the sports park to set up and sell. We had both a table and a wagon to sell items. After three hours of selling on the first day, we reached $170 profit. So we decided to go another day to reach our goal.

The next day, we went to Patelco and sold just from a table. After a couple of hours, we passed our goal and made $258.50 profit to donate.

From this experience, we learned that a lot of good can be done from just a few of hours of work. We really appreciated help from our teammates, had fun, and felt good about donating to a good cause. We hope that this story will inspire you to help others also.

Help Clean Up The Sports Park – U15 Elite 2

u15-elite2For my service project I decided to help clean up the sports park. First my mom and I searched for a date that was a good time to do this project. Then I compiled a list of all the items I would need to put this into action. Then my mom and I wrote and sent the invite to friends and teammates. Unfortunately only 1 teammate showed up, but we still got lots of work done. we wanted to clean up the sports park but it was closed last minute, so we cleaned up val vista instead. In conclusion we cleaned up the park very well, and I am glad that I  choose to clean up the park.  – Jeffery, Derek, Brenden,Jonah

Matthew Salas – U13 US Developmental Academy

For my community service project I collected coats, sweaters and scarfs, and donated them to the Davis Street Family Resource Center, in San leandro. I thought that this was a good deed to do, because I wanted to give people things that they do not have.  The weather had been very cold, close to 35 degrees and some people needed winter clothes.  At first, I was hesitant to do presentations to my relatives, but then I pictured all the people that would be happy and thankful for the coats and sweaters that they would receive. I got the courage to do a presentation to all of my relatives either in person or over the phone.  I  asked if they had any spare winter clothes that they would like to donate for a special cause.  I scheduled times to go to their houses and collect coats, gloves, scarfs and sweaters from my relatives that would help other people. I collected over 30 items of winter clothes from my uncles, aunts, cousins, and parents.

When I went to the Davis Street Family Center,  I saw a lot of items being donated such as food, clothes and toys. I was truly amazed!  I took the winter clothes to the warehouse where all the items were being collected and given to the people who needed it the most. I felt really good that I was able to help people and give back to the community. Especially in this time of the year where it is very cold.

I understand how leadership ties in with community services, because you have to organize everthing. Just like in soccer, you make sure your team is ready for a game and have them organized. You become a leader when you do all of this.
