The game of soccer in Pleasant Grove is something that has bound the community together. Saturday afternoons, families gather to cheer on their children, cousins, friends, and classmates as they take on the Gators, Mavericks, or Real Madrid, to name a few! Excitement is high as spectators cheer to the sound of “GOOOOOAL” and enjoy refreshments from the concession stand.
Now winning isn’t everything in the Victory Sports program. The first priority of the program is to teach the children teamwork and discipline. Volunteer coaches teach different skills and provide the kids with a safe, Christian environment where they can learn the game of soccer. Making friends and teaching respect is another focus in practices and games so the kids can take these skills with them into their regular life. And each practice and game players includes a time of prayer and devotion.
