Why did you join Cincy SC?

“Being new to the Cincy area, I was encouraged to find friendly coaches at PIVO Academy. I loved that parents could participate and, after earning my black belt and experiencing the fun and challenge of playing with the kids, I felt like this is a great environment and opportunity to share my love for this sport with future generations.

Even though my day job is not connected to soccer, I’m going to be counting down the hours to go to the field to play like I used to when I was a kid in school. Thanks to Cincy SC for the this great opportunity! Eventually I would love to share soccer with some of the under-resourced areas in Cincinnati. I grew up playing in the streets of a big city, and although there were no soccer programs for kids in my neighborhood, we loved the game.”
