After a grueling six games played against international teams ranging from the USA to Mexico, the Bonivital Flames U14 Red were undefeated. Playing the seventh game on Saturday, July 18 for the Cup championship, the high-pressure game against Ecuador was scoreless after regular time as well as two overtimes, leading to the ever-stressful penalty kicks. The Bonivital players kept their positive attitude and energy despite playing over 90 minutes in hot and humid weather. Congratulations to the players, coaches Paul Simoes and Miguel Hay and manager Dorota Szpakowski on winning the USA Cup.
We hope that all the Bonivital teams that attended the USA Cup Weekend tournament had an enjoyable and successful weekend. Good Luck to those teams participitating in the week-long tournament.

Bonivital Soccer Club is proud to be one of the first in the nation to adopt the new Preferred Training Model. The new Preferred Training Model is designed to completely revamp the way we train our players in the golden years of learning at the learn to Train stage between 8 and 12. The model incorporates all facets of the game and is designed to affect the four corners of development with soccer movement and physical coordination at its core, with elements of technical development in the technique and skills station and tactical development in the small sided games area.
If there is lightning in your immediate vicinity, terminate the game/practice and SEEK IMMEDIATE SAFETY. Remember the 30/30 lightning safety rule: Go indoors if, after seeing lightning, you cannot count to 30 before hearing thunder. Stay indoors for 30 minutes after hearing the last clap of thunder. You can estimate how many miles away a storm is by counting the number of seconds between the flash of lightning and the clap of thunder. Divide the number of seconds by five to get the distance in miles.
