Welcome back to our first issue of 2020! The winter was incredibly successful for so many Crossfire players, and we are definitely excited to share their achievements with you!
XF Family Support
In these uncertain and trying times for our community, we want to make sure the club is there to support our families and members, and as such, we are writing to offer delivery services for any families in need.

If you have family members with immunodeficiency, older family members or are in quarantine due to having been exposed to COVID—19, our Crossfire coaches can help by shopping for your necessities and delivering directly to your door. We want to help make certain none of our XF families go without during these trying times and we are willing to help out in any way possible. 

If you have shopping or other essential needs, please email steve.crum@crossfiresoccer.org with the subject “Crossfire Shopping.” Someone from the club will respond and help take care of your needs. 
U-17 Academy travels to Mexico
The U-16/17 DA squad enjoyed an 8-day training camp in Mexico City from January 12-20. Organized by Crossfire’s international partner, SportChain, the team had training sessions and four high-level friendly matches while also seeing the sights of the world’s fifth most-populated city. The friendlies included matches versus the U-17 Academy teams from some of Mexico’s most renowned Liga MX clubs: Deportivo Toluca Fútbol Club, Club de Fútbol América and Cruz Azul. The boys were also able to visit the Mexican National Federation training center as well as a first-team match at Club América.
