How Long Have you Been with the Club? I started playing with this club (when it was Spirit United) at 6 years old! 

Have you Had Any Setbacks Along the Way? One year, I had a coach who didn't believe in me. I was playing out of position and lost confidence. My team got a new coach at the end of the season, and things turned around immediately for me. He believed in me and helped me to believe in myself again. Ultimately that coach has made me a better player and helped to motivate and inspire me to reach my goals. 

What Do you think Sets FC DELCO Apart? This club will support your development as a player and push you to your max potential to make you the best player you can be. 

What Advice Would You Give Younger Players: Never let anyone tell you that you can't do something because you 100% can!


"Playing for FC DELCO has been an experience that I wouldn’t trade for the world. Throughout the years, I have had so much support from my teammates and coaches to help me reach my goal of playing at a Division 1 level in college." - Ava Rightmire
