"I LOVE SOCCER! I HAVE PLAYED SOCCER MANY SEASONS NOW. I HAVE FUN, GET TO MAKE FRIENDS AND PLAY WITH COACHES. I LOVE SOCCER AND MY MEDAL I CAN SHOW EVERYONE!"

"AS GRANDPARENTS OF A CHILD WITH DOWN SYNDROME WHO PARTICIPATES. IN THIS LEAGUE, WE REALLY APPRECIATE THE TIME, EFFORT, MONEY AND OPPORTUNITIES THIS HAS OPENED UP FOR HER. SHE LOOKS FORWARD TO HER GAMES EACH WEEK, TO MEET HER FRIENDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS, TO PARTICIPATE IN A SPORTING ACTIVITY JUST AS OTHER CHILDREN HER AGE DO, AND TO GET SOME MUCH NEEDED EXERCISE. SPECIAL-NEEDS CHILDREN OFTEN DON’T GET SUCH OPPORTUNITIES. WE HOPE THE COMMUNITY WILL RECOGNIZE HOW SIGNIFICANT AN ACHIEVEMENT THIS IS."
