Great night out with some of our ELITE 2010/2009/2008/2007 and 2006 girls teams at Buckshaw Field to watch the Santa Clara Women’s Broncos take on Stanford! Our ELITE players participated in several on field experiences including pre-game bench time with the players, pre-game fan tunnel, half time scrimmage, half time fan tunnel and post game group pic! Experiences like these will show our players where their hard work will take them in the future! Thanks to all of our ELITE families for their participation! #ELITESoccer
Hello ELITE Soccer Families, please meet Jordyn DuBoce. Jordyn is the Goalie for ELITE Soccer 07G Orange, and she is living with Alopecia. September is Alopecia Awareness Month and to bring awareness to Jordyn’s condition her team will be wearing Royal Blue ELITE Socks (the nationally recognized color for Alopecia) for all games in September. So, what is Alopecia (al-oh-PEE-shah)? Alopecia means hair loss. Alopecia is not contagious. It is not due to nerves. What happens is that the immune system attacks the hair follicles, causing hair loss. This disease most often occurs in otherwise healthy people.
Many consider Goalkeepers to be the most important player on the field. As the last line of defense, the stress is intense. When it comes to mentally tough positions to play, it is hard to beat the goalkeepers. When asked; Jordyn’s teammates will tell you that there is no one they would rather see in that box but cool, calm, confident, and courageous Jordyn DuBoce! As their keeper, she always has her teams’ back; and in their blue socks in September they will show her they have hers too!
So this September, Alopecia Awareness Month; while we are inspired by your confidence (both on and off the field) please know that we are all standing together in support of you Jordyn and your efforts to raise awareness for those living with Alopecia.
