G12 Green win 2021 Rainier Challenge U10 Premier Division

The G12 Green have had a great last 12 months of soccer, reaching the final of the Washington Cup (playing up a year), going undefeated at the Proliance Tournament at 60 Acres, more recently reaching the final of the 2022 Pac Winter Classic (despite being without many key players) and most notably winning the Rainier Challenge last summer, becoming the first Celtic team ever to win the premier division of this elite tournament.

In what was one of the highlights of the year for the club, following an exciting 1-1 draw in the final vs Washington Premier G12 Black, the G12 Green girls displayed nerves of steel in the resultant shootout, scoring all five penalties to emerge victorious. Coach Tyler has been thrilled at the progress shown by the girls over the last year and they have a very bright future in the game. In watching back the Veo footage of the final, one thing that sticks out is the excitement on the sideline, and it was really great to witness the exuberance of the many older siblings as they cheered on their sisters in action! We've included footage of the shoot-out below as well as some highlights of the girls from early in their careers all the way back in 2020  :)  - so impressive to see how well they move the ball and their fantastic game intelligence at only 8 (and 7 for some!) years old!
