“This is a new generation of athletes, besides being young (the youngest is 5 yrs.old) , most of them never competed in a tournament at a national level. They did a fantastic job, besides representing our Team with honor, respect and sportsmanship, they showed to all of us coaches and parents that their future is bright and very promising.
I’m personally very happy and thankful to know how their parents support us and trust our work. Also, a big thankful to Mrs.Pamela Towne and Mr. Ralph Lobianco for coaching the team while I was absent! We are surrounded by fantastic families!”-Master Lima
