Welcome to My Rally Campaign
My name is Luciano Iocco and I am 16 years old and I have been playing soccer ever since I was 4. Soccer is my passion, any chance there is to improve my skills I jump right on it. This year my team has been presented with the once in a liftetime opportunity to travel to Spain, Madrid and Valencia, for 10 days to practice with UEFA licensed professional coaches and compete in international friendly games. This is one of the most incredible chances that I would never have expected to appear. Now that it is here I do not want to miss out on it. My dream is to play soccer for a division one college and at the very least, win a national title.
Why I'm Raising Funds
The funds that are raised will be used for transportation (airfare, buses, etc.), training costs, coaching costs, equipment, lodging, and of course, meals. Over the years my team has become the closest group of soccer players I have ever been a part of. If just one of us missed out on this opportuntiy, we would all be devastated.
How I Got Here
I started playing soccer eleven years ago and I have fallen in love with the sport. I have never even attempted to play another sport because once soccer got hold of me it never let go. It has taught me respect, determination, and teamwork. The road to get here was rough and just like every good journey it had its ups and downs, but overtime I realized that the wins are not what will unlock your full potential, it's the losses and how you and your teammates react. All the blood, sweat, and tears shed over games that some people would say didn't even matter shaped me to be the player I am today. Now I have an opportunity to share and improve my skills on an international platform.
This incredible opportunity is only possible because of my amazing club and coaches, and of course my unrivaled parents. Without the support of everyone surrounding me I would not be here today. My team, coaches, and club are looking forward to representing soccer in America on a global platform.
