SF United Elite 04 is made girls from many different schools all across the city which adds a great diversity to the team. The team has worked its way up in NORCAL Premier league by being crowned Champions in Bronze 2 in the Spring 2018 and most recently crowned Champions in Bronze 1 this past Fall 2018. Due to the hard work and development of the team, they will be playing in NORCAL PREMIER LEAGUE Silver division for Spring 2018.
About 1/2 of the girls have been playing together for a few years but 1/2 were new with the age changes. The girls seem to really enjoy each other’s company, were welcoming to new players and play well together as a new team. The parents are friendly and respectful on the sidelines.
Coach Mike Rivas is loved and respected by the girls. He expects a lot of the girls but has a mild manner that works well with the girls and parents appreciate. He tells the girls that he wants them "to look him in the eye and tell him that they did their best and gave it their all." He is also great about working with each girl to improve them not only on the soccer field but prepare them with life lessons they can take with them for the rest of their lives.
The club is looking to add players of this age to continue to strengthen the foundation of all 3 teams at this age, especially with the transition into High School for most girls.
