Fav Futsal/Soccer Memory:
I’ve played in numerous tournaments and earned a lot of medals/trophies but my favorite soccer memory is a simple one. When I was in college, I would go to the rec center after class and play pickup soccer for hours on end. I met a bunch of people, even my would-be husband, and all of us “regulars” became really good friends. One chilly winter day it was snowing but we all showed up at night to play under the lights. We were freezing. We couldn’t feel our fingers or toes, our cleats were soaked, icy air entered our lungs, were falling down on the slippery turf… and yet we had SO much fun. We laughed until our sides hurt and played until we nearly got frostbite. The greatest thing was that nobody forced us to be there. We all willingly showed up because we truly loved to play and I will never forget the pure joy that night brought all of us.
I love that anybody, at any age or skill level, can feel welcome at RCF. When I first moved to Oregon and didn’t know anybody, I was able to sign up for a team as an individual and start making new friends right away. What I love about my RCF coworkers is that everyone is very talented and has a genuine love of the game. It’s this energy and passion that makes us the best coaches around!
