Gavin Watson – U13 Elite 1

2016-12-22T19:49:54+00:00

Hello, my name is Gavin Watson, on the U-13 Elite 1 team, and for my community service project, my family and I, did a fun run for A-T disease. A-T stands for ataxia-telangiectasia, which affects a large variety of systems in the body, causing symptoms that affect health and daily living.

My family and I went to the Pleasanton sports park in the morning, and hosted a fun run. The fun run was going to raise money to find a cure for the A-T disease. My goal was $500. My family and my grandpa went over to the sports park to set up the place where you donate the money. It was raining in the morning, but luckily, it stopped raining just in time for the run. I was a little worried that some people wouldn’t show up because of the rain. But, surprisingly, almost everyone I invited showed up. The run was really fun running with my friends around the sports park. At the end of the day, I was shocked. I counted all of the money we had got, and we got over $1,000!

This project was really fun and I hope that money does something good to the cause. I really hope that scientists find a cure for the disease soon, so that a lot of kids will be really happy.

2016-10-21T11:41:37+00:00
 
 
Elliot Swigert, one of BUSC’s own is experiencing a year round soccer study abroad opportunity in Barcelona provided by our clubs partnership with IFX Soccer! After playing this past season on our clubs US Soccer U14 academy team, Elliot and his family chose to provide him this great international experience.
 
He is doing really well and enjoying himself tremendously.  He is going to a school that is about 10-15 blocks from the Camp Nou and is fitting in really well.   He is on the school futsal team playing with the 16-18 boys.  He is also playing on a regional team called Espluguenc FC http://www.cfaespluguenc.com/.   He lives in the Gracia district in central Barcelona and has a wonderful host family.  He has a subway card and easily gets around all over the city and is basically loving it.  He plays either futsal or soccer almost every day.
 
Recently he went to the Champions league game against Bayer Levekusen.   He said the atmosphere was amazing – especially after Suarez scored.   Attached are some pictures including one where his parents captured him on TV – he is the one with the white phone behind.
 
We are proud and excited for Elliot and look forward to more updates throughout the year. For more information on IFX Soccer, contact Mike Carlson at mcarlson@ifxsoccer.com
