Last year the girls won their AA-A division and moved up to AAA. Their goal is to earn Premier status. The last Premier team in Ramona was Coach Robert Blase’s BU19 in 2007.

Jordan, a seasoned coach and experienced player, teaches the physical and mental aspects of the game. The core members of the GU16 team have been playing together since they were 8 years old. This is their seventh competitive season together.

The team finished in the top 16 of State Cup last spring, finished as a finalist  in the Xolo/Barca Summer Classic in Temecula, took first place in the Slammers Futbol Classic invitational tournament, and took first  place in the Anaheim FC Tournament. During the Xolo/Barca tournament, Taylor Stacy received the Most Valuable Player tournament award for her outstanding goal keeper skills.

The team members also attended a college camp where they met 10 college women’s soccer coaches from across the nation.  The coaches watched the girls play in scrimmages.

“This team’s success continues because of their ability to develop and quickly learn new technical and tactical processes  of the game,” said Jordan. “We look forward to where this season takes us.”

Jordan is also the Ramona Soccer League’s director of coaches and said, “I hope this is one of many teams in Ramona that has  great success and opportunities.”
