The C and C GoldenHawks are a U13 girls team from Denver, CO. Evolving out of a unique situation, most the girls on the team grew up together in the Park Hill neighborhood and have played together on the same soccer team since kindergarten. Through the years they have managed to keep the team primarily in tact while advancing through the competitive ranks of the Colorado Youth Soccer Association. This has given them a decided advantage when it comes to team play and provided the girls with a family atmosphere that acts as a safety net both on and off the field. They have advanced to the championship game in the past four tournaments they entered and remain a powerhouse in season play with only six losses in their past 30 games.
The girls have come to love each other no different than sisters and the families have grown together as well, creating an environment that few are fortunate enough to experience. Their coach, Nathan Thornton, has been awarded the Coach of the Year award by the state and his club four years running for pioneering and perfecting a program that lies in team play and understanding of each other.
This year they will be attending Schwan's USA CUP with high expectations and a primary focus of having fun and meeting new people with the same goals and interests. They couldn't be more honored or excited to be participating in such a treasured display of the world's most beautiful game.
As guests they plan to enter humble and play to the best of their ability. Should that lead to the championship or an early departure they are confident the experience itself will be something they carry proudly for the rest of their lives. They are ready, they are hungry and more than anything they are open to whatever this wonderful opportunity brings. They will represent themselves and their amazing state to their fullest capability and try to engage in every facet that makes USA CUP different than any other experience on earth.
