We are proud to announce that the club has extended the partnerships with our Gold Level Club Sponsors Broward College and Holy Cross Hospital Orthopedic Institute.
Broward College, ranked among the TOP 3 Community Colleges in the Nation, with over 60000 students from more than 180 countries has been a long time partner of the club. The relationship between the club and the college don’t end with the name on a shirt. Former players as well as coaches of the club have been part of the school and played or are playing for the Broward College Men’s and Women’s soccer teams. In addition, veteran club coach Mike Goodrich (as the head coach) and our club director Olaf Henke (as the assistant coach) are leading the BC women’s team who just finished their best season in history by reaching the Division final, which they only lost in overtime to National Semi Finalist Eastern Florida.
Holy Cross Hospital Orthopedic Institute with Dr Manalac has been a partner for our club for 4 years now. The partnership gives our players and their families access to the great doctors of the group and athletic trainers. The staff provides an excellent first assessment and follow up service directly at our field on a regular base.
