Ariana and Precious travel to Seattle to compete in the ECNL National Championship tournament

while the focus of Ariana and Precious’ trip to Seattle in June was intense competition on the soccer field against the best teams in the country as they played in the ECNL National Championship tournament with their nationally ranked team from McLean, the importance and value of the off-the-field experiences they were exposed to cannot be overstated.

while their team just missed out on qualifying for the semifinals, the value and opportunity for these girls to travel across the country to Seattle, to take in Pike Place Market, to visit the world famous ‘gum wall’, and to pedal boating on the water, are experiences that they will not only hold onto but ones that will help shape the way they view their own community, their perspectives on the world around them, and their futures as growing young women.

take a look at their trip, on and off the field, here:
