Crescenta Valley SC B00 - 2017 Champions
Choices In Learning National Foundation proudly supported the Crescenta Valley SC B00 Boys Soccer Team at the 2017 Surf Cup Championship. Below is a letter from one of its senior coach’s, Kiel McClung, who shares the story of the team’s success and the difference the support from CILNF made in the lives of the players.
“I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for the gracious contribution to our team, Crescenta Valley SC B00. Your donation allowed our team to participate in one of the country’s largest college ID Showcase events.
Our team had an incredible showing at Surf Cup by beating some of the top teams in the country, and ultimately winning the championship. Because of the combination of winning the tournament and your contribution, many players lives were changed in the course of 3 days. We've had multiple players receive interest from Division 1 programs all the way through to NAIA schools. A total of 8 players will be committing to college soccer programs over the next few months after taking their school visits, because of this tournament.
Two players specifically have been affected by the contribution. J. Gonzalez lived in Oxnard, but because of an extreme family situation he was forced to relocate to Bakersfield. We did not think we would have him for the tournament but because of your contribution and due to his performance he has been offered an athletic scholarship to Arizona Western College.
The other player, D. Rodriguez, is a local student athlete from Eastside HS. He lives in a remote trailer park on H and 30th East. His dad works the onion fields and had David work with him during the heat wave this summer. David knows the opportunity soccer can potentially provide. I'm proud to report from this tournament, David just received an athletic scholarship from Menlo College, so he can now pursue a degree in Business.“
