Florida Gators: The Best Youth Soccer Team

The Florida Gators are undoubtedly the best youth soccer team around these days. Their record speaks for itself with 11 SEC championship wins, 9 SEC tournament wins and 14 NCAA tournament appearances – their 1998 NCAA win being a highlight. Amazingly, they have achieved all of this since the program began in 1994/5. As with every great team, the Gators have produced some excellent players in their 16 years in the SEC – in fact, 16 players have been selected as first-team All Americans including, Erin Baxter, Heather Mitts, Keisha Bell, Stacy Bishop, Melanie Booth, Danielle Fotopoulos and Abby Wambach, to name a few.I was looking for more information and found it here.

As of September 16th, 2011 the team has a 6-2-0 record with and average 2.38 goals scored per game to their opponents 0.88. Current star players include Erika Tymrak, Annie Speese and Taylor Travis. These hotshots all aspire to emulate former Gator, Abby Wambach who still holds team records for most goals scored, hat-tricks, game wining goals, assists, points and shots.

The Gators play out of Gainsville at James G. Pressly Stadium in Division one of the NCAA and the SEC. Head on down to give the team and head coach Becky Burleigh support this season!
