The 2009 Green team won a great finals match against Barcalona Bay Area with a final score of 3-2! The girls had a great time in the tournament with Coach Holly and we wish them good luck in the rest of their season!
Congratulations to our 2003 Quicksilver Green team for taking second in the MVLA Spring Cup after pushing the championship game to extra time and narrowly losing in a pk shootout. Well done ladies!!
Congratulations to our 2008 Quicksilver White Team for their strong performance in the MVLA Spring Cup. The girls took second place in the tournament, losing 1-0 in a very competitive finals match and we are very proud of their efforts and determination!
Our 2002 Mercury NPL team played in the u19 division for this tournament and did very well to take fourth place in a competitive bracket.
Our 2010 Quicksilver White team took fourth place in the bronze division of this tournament. For some of the girls on the team, this was their first experience playing in a competitive tournament and we hope they had a great time!
We are pleased to showcase six of our players from our 2003 Quicksilver NPL Team (Shelby, Kaiya, Emily, Meredith, Jaden, and Beth) that are currently playing in the Valencia Cup in Spain. We are very proud of these girls and all of the work that they put in during their training sessions and on the field in their games.
This opportunity was made possible through the girls commitment and desire to play at a high level during their time at Almaden FC. From the hard work and ability the girls have shown in the past three years and our affiliation with GPS through FC Bayern, fantastic opportunities such as these for the girls and many more have been created for players within AFC.
When asked about her experience, Shelby said, "One of the greatest experiences of the trip was being able to feel the soccer culture of Spain. Everywhere I looked there was something soccer related whether it was a billboard, locals supporting Valencia FC, or kids playing around with a soccer ball. It really was a once in a lifetime trip."
