U-11 girls soccer team seeks players

A Northwest under-11 girls elite soccer team needs players.

Great White trains Tuesdays and Thursdays at James Kriegh Park in Oro Valley.

The second season starts in January. Two players are needed immediately, with another three to five for summer and fall seasons.

“We compete at the highest level, and seek players who are willing to work hard to maintain this level of competition,” said Coach Jeff Wambolt.

The under-11 girls team has a 52-game win streak against Tucson teams, and is “one of the elite top five teams in the state,” Wambolt said. It has several tournament crowns and high finishes to its credit this year. Tournament costs are shared by all players, he said.

“We believe youth sports should be affordable, so we are the only elite-level team in Arizona that does not charge coaching fees,” Wambolt said. “When it seems the whole world is employing professional coaches and trainers and charging kids thousands of dollars to play on competitive teams, we’re different. We’re here because we love the sport of soccer.”

Wambolt may be reached at herrwambolt@hotmail.com, or by calling 877-9152.
