SUP is so excited to see all the kids improving their skills on the field! It gives us great pride and motivation to see how just in a months time, we see better ball control, more confidence and most importantly, a better team atmosphere. This week's player of the Week is Madison Jones of Monte Vista. Not only does she thrive on the field, but she does a great job of encouraging her teammates during practices. She even jumped right into the SUP shop as a store manager.
"It's wonderful to see how as a 5th grader, Madison instinctively tries to help the younger teammates by teaching them how to play as a team and what to do when your team is on offense or on defense. That's why she has become the official team Captain at Monte Vista." - Coach Brian
We asked Madison a few questions so that we can all learn a little more about her.
Outside of soccer, what do you like to do for fun? Clean my house, take care of my cat and write poetry.
What have you learned by being a part of SUP? Teamwork is always the key to winning!
What makes a good leader? Heping my teammates out if they need help and being proactive.
What's your favorite position in soccer? Goalie!
What's your favorite subject in school? Math and reading.
We can't wait to see how Madi improves over the coming months and we're proud to have her in the SUP family! Be sure to say congrats next time you see her!
