Athlete of the Month
Congratulations to Sophia McClain for being our March Athlete of the Month. Sophia is a 6th grader at Bear Canyon Elementary School in Highlands Ranch and her favorite subject is math. Sophia currently plays competitive soccer on the Colorado United Red team. Sophia spends almost all of her time playing, training and practicing soccer . . . all the time! Outside of soccer she does enjoy photography, painting and drawing.
We asked Sophia how Cody and Sterling’s Team Speed have made a difference in her training and here’s what was said. “Cody pushes Sophia to work to her full potential and constantly wanting to see her grow not only within her sport but mentally too. He helps her keep things in perspective and strives for excellence in all that she does.”
We also asked her what she liked most about Sterling’s Team Speed. “Sophia loves the atmosphere at Sterling’s Team Speed and how welcoming everyone is, it is a great environment to be supported to thrive in your sport!”
Just for fun, we also asked Sophia if she knows where she’d like to go to college yet and if she knows what she wants to be when she grows up, here’s what was said, “Ever since Sophia was 9-years-old, she has wanted to attend DU where she would love to play soccer. She intends on a scholarship for Academics and Athletics . . .let’s hope she’s right! Sophia would love to play soccer professionally but knows that the competition is incredibly tough, so her backup plan is to study Physical Therapy for Sports Medicine.”
Finally, “Sophia started playing soccer when she was 3-years-old and has been passionate about the game ever since. She has had the opportunity to have many wonderful coaches that have instilled a love and passion for the game.”
Way to go, Sophia! Congratulations again from your friends at Sterling’s Team Speed!
