Our community is an island of opportunity. It is evident at the youth level and showcased in the adult ranks. We have youth being tapped for NCAA Division I programs and prodigies such as local standout Aaron Long, who just earned a start on the U.S. Men’s National Team. But here in the High Desert, knowledge of the pathway is often skewed and directions foggy, even for the most talented players of our region. We aim to assemble a combine of the existing youth clubs to establish a developmental foundation that guides the talent of this community through the game’s upper echelon of achievement.
