Monday Memories (March 31, 2014) -- A Youth Soccer Championship



In 1997 our older son was thirteen years old and soccer was his sport of choice after having left baseball behind. Both he and his younger brother were enthusiastic soccer players and they attended week-long soccer camps at Northwood School in Lake Placid during the summers for fun and to improve their skills. 

As the above photograph shows, our older son's team "Big Red" won the LYSA (Loudoun Youth Soccer Association) All-Star Soccer Tournament in 1997. He is pictured (fourth boy from the right in the back row) with his teammates and coaches. It was a thrilling tournament and a well-earned victory.
