AYSO Team Has Winning Combination

| Sports | March 18, 2017

What could have been an ordinary season for a team of girls in AYSO has become much more. And according to coach Leda Mora, it’s more than just a championship.

“As a soccer coach I can tell you that I have never (coached) a team like this,” Mora said. “These girls (taught) me that, more than just coach them, sometimes we have to be friends with them, (and) that winning a season without losing any games can be possible if we practice with a positive attitude. Every girl is different and … I have to be able to teach them as they need.”

The Royals won first place in the AYSO GU14-Region 46, followed by the championship in the section league and then took fourth place in the section championship.

“The Royals are a group of girls that built a friendship, they believe in (themselves) and they are positive,” said Mora, a native of Costa Rica. “They are girls from different schools, with different knowledge, but they all have the same goal – play soccer.”

Mora is taking time to reflect, as this was his last season coaching. He commends supporters in the stands, as well as the players. “To be a complete team, we have to have good parents, and we did,” he said. “I am sure that I will never forget these girls and I know that I am going to see many of them play in high school.”
