The U16 women's TFC Crossfire (Tracy, California, USA) was put together last year. Although the team is young, they have the potential to be very competitive. The team has been working tirelessly with emphasis on the technical aspect of the game over the last four to five months. The team has played in our State Cup preliminary round and are about to play in the knock-out phase in late March.
The Schwan's USA CUP idea came from a team manager's family who resides in Spencer, Iowa. Her niece and the club she plays for has been participating in Schwan's USA CUP for the last few years and haave thoroughly enjoyed it. The coach has been coaching for 15 years and never once took a team outside California. The idea, player personnel, coaching staff, and timing could not have been better. A player/parent meeting was called, the Schwan's Cup video was shown, and the rest was history.
To date, TFC Crossfire have fundraisered to offset some of the financial burden for parents and have raised approximately $12,000. The team still has a long way to go, but are very excited about this excellent opportunity.
