The Richmond Kickers U17 Girls Elite are set to travel to San Diego on July 27-31, to compete against the best clubs in the nation in another top rated showcase event, The San Diego Surf Cup. The Kickers will face #14 ranked Santa Rosa United (California-North), the #23 ranked West Coast FC ECNL (California-South) squad, and the Washington State Champs Eastside FC (WA) in pool play.
The team was thrilled to be selected to compete in the highest bracket versus two of the top 25 ranked teams in the nation. The tournament is held at the San Diego Polo Club in Del Mar, California. The event is heavily recruited by college coaches from around the country and will give the Kickers girls another opportunity to continue to impress college coaches. Currently, three players from the squad have committed while four other players were recently selected to the Region One team.
“This group of U17 girls continues to make the commitment to test their abilities against the best teams in the nation," commented Rob Ukrop, U17 Girls Elite Head Coach. "They have consistently competed at high level national events such as the Disney Showcase, Las Vegas Players Showcase, The Jefferson Cup, and the PDA Showcase. After a strong showing this spring, sweeping their games at Disney, Jefferson Cup, and PDA, they were excited to find more national level competition, and are excited to compete and represent Richmond in San Diego. "
Good Luck Girls!
