Caitlin has lived and breathed soccer since she was 4 years old. When people have said she couldn't do it, she just worked harder to make it happen. We have started calling her the "come from behind kid"!

Caitlin was told by "well-meaning" soccer parents she would never play soccer at New Trier High School, they were too competitive and you had to "know the right people".

Caitlin tried out and made the Freshman A team. She buckled down and got to work, doing what she does best...playing soccer. She was voted Captain of her team and by the end of the year, she was asked to play with the Varsity team for their Championship game. Caitlin ended her first year of soccer at New Trier as the top goal scorer and top goal assister not only for her team, not only for every other girls team, including Varsity...but for all the boy's teams as well. This is only one example of Caitlin persevering and suceeding, out of many. If there is any doubt in your mind at this point, let me erase it. She really is "that good".

Caitlin has worked very hard, and often sacrificed evenings out and sleepovers with her friends, even dates with boys...why? Because she loves to play soccer, and that's what she has chosen to do, to be the best at what she loves. She has gotten so good at it, that she is now playing on a National level.

As her mother, I am so proud of the commitment, sacrifice and dedication my daughter has shown. Soccer and being a part of a team, has helped make Caitlin a wonderful person. I want her to go as far as her talent and dedication will take her, not to be held back because finances won't allow it. Caitlin is part of a big family, with 6 brothers and sisters. The whole family is proud of her and supports her soccer goals. Everyone in the family has gladly made sacrifices so she can continue to playing soccer however, we are at the limit of what we can do.

Please help Caitlin to be able to continue doing what she loves best, playing soccer. This year she is headed to San Diego, Phoenix, and the golden egg, the Disney Showcase Tournament...which will be shown on ESPN. Only with help from our family and friends will this happen. Every dollar helps :) Thank you for taking the time to read about helping Caitlin...Peaceful Blessings to you and yours!
