Juan's Story

I discovered my passion for soccer when I started playing more competitively in a travel team. When I started playing for my travel team I realized I wasn't getting as much playing time as I got when I played for parks and rec. I knew I was passionate about soccer because it hurt me to sit on the bench. After my first season with U11 travel, I started to practice in the summer as much as I could so I could become better and start next season. When next season came, I was also playing with my middle school. I had improved so much I became an important player in the middle school team my first year. The tingly feeling I got in my head from playing well made me hungry for the sport. I realized I couldn't live without the sport.

Attending US Sports Nike Soccer Camps will help me pursue my passion for soccer because I know how great the program is. I attended the program last year with the help of Wishbone. I could honestly say that I believe this program made me a smarter and better player. This program helped me realize what position I truly wanted to play and the type of player I was. I believe that even though I already went last year for a week, it wasn't enough. I want to attend US Sports Nike Soccer Camps again because I want to find out more about myself through soccer and I also believe this program will help me get to the level I really want to be at. My end goal with soccer is to play college soccer and I strongly believe this program will help me attain this dreams, especially with senior year coming up.

A Note from Mrs. Salas, Juan's Coach

By participating in the US Sports Nike Soccer Camp, Juan will help elevate his level of play and I truly believe that through sports and soccer, Juan will develop important life skills to help him beyond the field. Juan has made it very clear that he wants to play soccer at a collegiate level and wants to go to college on a 'full ride' for soccer. I strongly believe that US Sports Nike Soccer Camps will help Juan attain this.
