Our oldest son plays competitive soccer. We have all been fortunate to be part of an awesome signature team, JUSA Crew, now club Chelsea 00 Blue, in Placentia. Leaving this team in order to move to Spokane was a really difficult decision. The coaches are great, the players are talented and good kids too for a bunch of scrappy 12 year olds.
We knew we had to get our son on a new soccer team in Spokane as soon as possible to help him through the transition. Internet research, phone calls and emails to various teams, organizations, clubs and random people were made in attempts to find the best team options for our #33.
My son and I took a 4-day trip to Spokane in April to meet and try out with three different soccer teams. One was lame, we said no thanks. The second was great and the third had potential. Tryouts with the second and third teams went well and we were told we’d know the outcome the week of May 20.
The week is here and we are happy – thrilled – to report that our son was selected for the Premier Club team with FC Spokane.
Soccer team – check. [sigh with relief].
