GCFC competitive women playing soccer in Europe!
Date: Thursday July 12 2012
As featured in the London SportsXpress Magazine July/August issue
GLSC and GCFC women teams have formed a very close relationship over the last few years with players, based on results of annual try outs, potentially playing for one club in one year and the other club the following year. Practices are very often combined for some of these teams, providing opportunities for the coaches to work with the teams as well as focus on development of individual players.
So, who are these teams?
GCFC has teams in the top three divisions of LAWSL – Premier Bullets, Div I Firebirds and Div II Blaze. They are proud to represent the GCFC and are excited to see the continued growth in the women, men, youth, and masters programs at the club.
GLSC also has three teams in LAWSL – Div I Force, Div III Blitz and Rec Division Blizzard.
Many of the Bullets players have been together for a number of years, progressing through the youth divisions of LDYSL and WOYSL, winning several titles and tournaments along the way, while individual players received soccer scholarships in both the US and Canada.
This summer two teams, consisting of players from four of these teams (Bullets Blaze, Force and Blitz) as well as guest players from other teams are heading off to Europe; the third such trip to Europe that has been undertaken since 2000. The teams will be participating in the Donosti tournament in San Sebastian, Spain, before heading off to France (Paris), Luxembourg, Germany (Stuttgart, Heidelberg), Switzerland (Lucerne, Zurich), and Italy (Como, Milan) playing a series of exhibition games along the way.
It will again be an experience of a lifetime.
