Thank you and Congratulation!

Hi Coaches, Parents and Players,

 

This has been a great journey! Thanks to your hard work and cooperation, we have had a very successful PAJC for 2013. Congratulations to all the players and coaches who made the trip – you have represented USA with distinction. To the players, if you ever doubt how much your parents love you, just remember all the forms we had them fill out on your behalf leading to the tournament not to mention the cost for the trip. J

In this PAJC tournament, the team USA shows big strength in age groups U11 and U13. They are the bright future for team USA. Hope these young players continue to work hard and prepare for the tough competitions in higher age groups in the future. Go Team USA!

 

We will be seeing you in future tournaments.

 

Thank you,
