LOGAN, UT – More than 500 players, parents and coaches attended the Infinity Soccer Club (ISC) Annual Awards Banquet held at the Riverwoods Conference Center Monday, May 6. The ceremony is a tradition to celebrate the past year and award players for outstanding achievements in soccer.
Jeff Ginn, technical director for ISC, said “It’s an honor to stand here before all of you and celebrate with you the growth of quality soccer in our community. We teach a style of soccer that challenges each player and parent to be patient with the outcome. It’s amazing to me the quality of the kids that are in the club. We have good, goal-driven dreamers in this club. I am proud to be associated with such a fine group of kids and their families! Forever Futbol!”
Ginn recently earned his National B license, which certifies a coach to target players age 16 through college level.
Bill Riley, the voice of Real Salt Lake and ESPN 700 announcer addressed the players in a keynote address. He talked about what an exciting time it is for soccer in Utah, especially for female players with Real Salt Lake Women joining the Women’s Premier Soccer League.
