Faith, Family, Soccer. These are the tenets we subscribe to within the Girls Soccer Program. We aim to not only compete hard, but also build everlasting memories and relationships in a team atmosphere The Stallions participate in a very challenging schedule to improve as a team and to prepare for the State Soccer Tournament.
The DeSales Girls Soccer Program is built on the pillars of God, family, school, and soccer. Each of our athletes are to put God first, family second, school third and soccer fourth.
Athletes are expected to excel in the classroom, the community, and on the soccer field. The team focuses on building long lasting friendships with teammates, working everyday to become the best soccer player you can be, the best teammate you can be, and to become the best team we can become.
We do this one practice and one game at a time.
