What a day today!! Our 4th of July started early with Soccerfest at John Tarleton Field, where Flames were split up and placed on opposing teams to play friendly games with their U16 competition. It was great to see smiles and laughter among Flames and players all over the USA in this U16 division as they shared their stories while developing teammate trust with one another.
It was hot and humid on those fields today, and the stickiness continued into the evening as we took over the no-breeze Knoxville Zoo. Even the animals seemed to have had enough of it all. It was a good change of scenery for us, and it was cool to see what this Panda-Monium was all about — a beautifully active small red panda.
So, Flames, now it’s time to go make some pandemonium of our own and take on the next three days of pool play. This is what we came here for. This is our dream. It’s time to take care of business. So suit up, warm up, and set your world on fire. We can’t wait to watch it all happen.
