We were very excited when our daughter was selected for the 07 girls team with LFA. The attention to detail of all the little skills needed to excel in this sport are second to none that we have seen. LFA has been an amazing confidence builder for our daughter and she is so proud to be part of a team of “like” soccer minded girls. The coaching and support staff are very knowledgeable and we have seen our daughter developed and accel both on and off the pitch. She has gained an amazing confidence to try her hardest to succeed in all aspects of her life.
