The 2004 Girls King City Royals Rep Soccer Team
Our program is designed to create a competitive, challenging and positive training/game environment for our players. We focus on technical, tactical, physical and mental aspects of the game. Our aim is to prepare our players to play at the collegiate level, and while doing so learn valuable life skills such as teamwork, sportsmanship, commitment, communication and time management.
