Sounders Stars LIGHT UP FC Alliance Club Night

GOLAZO – the Spanish word for not just any soccer goal; but a soccer goal performed with such artistry that it’s a BEAUTIFUL GOAL – was the theme at FC Alliance Club Night, Monday, April 9th.

Bothell High School gymnasium was ROCKING WITH ENTHUSIASM, as President Tom Campbell, Director of Coaching Dave Schumacheror, Boys Teams Coaching Director Hugo Alcaraz, and Girls Teams Coaching Director Katie Hultin, shared an inspiring series of movies, awards, and speakers, all of whom showed BY EXAMPLE, how goal-setting and hard work rewards players who are ALL IN to achieve their personal GOLAZOS.
An amazing short movie featuring Coach Santa Maria Rivera shared Santa’s triumph over severe childhood obstacles to achieve his GOAL : being a professional soccer player on the Sounders and a youth soccer coach at FCA who shows players how to achieve their goals. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when President Tom Campbell and Golazo hydration drink President Richard Tait announced a new soccer field would be named in Coach Santa’s mother’s honor: Isabelle Rivera Fields.
Two young FCA players were singled out for their inspiring work on the soccer fields during the 2011-2013 season.
Janie Reid – Female Player of the Year
Jacob Kavanagh – Male Player of the Year
But when Sounders FC players Ozzie Alonso and David Estrada showed up, the crowd went wild. David had visited with the FCA players last year, when he was working hard – training to be THE MOST FIT PLAYER on the pitch - to earn his starting slot on the Sounders team this season, where he is now their leading scorer this season with an astounding  5 goals. David attributed his personal success – and the team’s continued success – to the man who is widely considered to be the best mid-fielder in the MLS, Ozzie Alonso. The players delighted FCA players by answering questions and signing autographs.
Every player left with a bright blue FCA carabiner and Goal Journal card, where they will record their three top goals for next season, and clip to their soccer backpacks to be their constant reminder.  In addition, Golazo hydration drink announced an AMAZING $250 AWARD to the boy and girl’s team that best achieves their goals next season.
