Michel's Story

My passion is soccer. My passion began when I was a little kid. However, I couldn't find a team to support me and to play with, so I wasn't able to play regularly until three years ago. Now, I play for my school, and have been in the program for 2 years already. I hope I'll be able to continue playing and continue to improve at what I have always loved to do throughout the years.

By attending US Sports Nike Soccer Camp, I'll be able to further develop my skills as well as my mentality as an athlete. This will help me pursue my passion, as well as surrounding myself with new friends from outside my school. This will help push me out of my comfort zone, and also allow me to be able to work with others and form strong and stable friendships in a team.

A Note from Wendy Lou Duong, Michel's Teacher

Michel's parents are very supportive of his academic goals and would like his involvement in soccer to help him get an athletic scholarship for college. He knows his success is a team effort between his family, our school, and his teammates. Michel and I have kept in contact since he was my student last year. He periodically updates me on his struggles and successes, particularly about soccer and geometry since I am math teacher in the school. More than once he expressed his desire to improve on the field and move up to full time varsity roster. I have made a point to draw analogies between his efforts to make improvements in the classroom with his potential to improve on the soccer field. I believe his ability to attend US Sports Nike Soccer Camps will allow him to further develop his confidence and skillsets academically and personally.

Soccer Camp Ready!

I’m more excited than ever. I’m sure I’ll come back a better player and further develop my skills. I can’t wait to attend this program and meet the staff and hopefully make new friends. I’m really thankful to those who donated. You are the reason why I’m able to attend this camp. I’ll be sure to make my time at the camp good and enjoyable.
