melady's Story

My passion is soccer.

I discovered my passion for soccer while spending free time with my father. Every Saturday and Sunday, we would go to a field and we went to work together improving our skills and fitness. Playing soccer has taught me the value of hard work, teamwork, sportsmanship, and discipline, all traits which carry over into every aspect of life. More importantly, soccer helped me develop and maintain a bond with my father.

Attending US Sports Nike Soccer Camps will help me when I try out for my neighborhood school's soccer team and for other teams. Soccer is my favorite sport, so going here would be a great experience for me.

A Note from Ms. Whitaker Haaheim, melady's Mentor

Melady is a determined self-starter who is a trained athlete. Some people mistakenly underestimate the athleticism that is required by dancers in their training, but since her beginning with BalletHaven and her continuation into her arts high education up through sophomore year, she has developed a discipline and a dedication that is shared only among athletes.

I know how important sports are to Melady. I believe that being around other athletes like her will be both inspiring and fulfilling. It's an honor to support young people in pursuing what matters to them. I think we owe it to hard-working, passionate young people to be the ones cheering in their corner. Here, we have an opportunity to do more than that. We have the opportunity to send her to a place where she can come back transformed in support of who she truly is. That is a gift for all of us.
