The Happiest Place on Earth
U6 ESC players, Tilly Metz and Scarlett Kinney, traveled to Orlando, Florida, this past January to compete at the Disney 3v3 Soccer Championship.
The girls joined up with an Orlando Rush team and competed in the U7 boys division, putting up a good battle.
ESC Coach, Amy Tilley, said she was so impressed with how aggressive the girls played against the boys and she could see a difference in their performances in their futsal games back in Elkhorn the following weekend. "Tilly was super excited when she scored her 1st goal on the boys, with her arms up high, jumping up and down with excitement," said Tilley.
Tilly & Scarlett said their favorite part of the tournament was seeing all of the Disney characters dressed up in soccer gear. Minnie Mouse was dressed as a player and Goofy was dressed as a referee.
"For myself as a parent and a coach, I just like to see my kids experience fun opportunities that will help deepen their love for the game," said Tilley.
