“We are delighted for these girls and very pleased with the growing strength of our Girls Program” said Mickey Kydes, Beachside SC’s Director of Coaching.

“The achievements of this group of young women are a milestone for our club. This year we won our first Girls state championship at U14 and our u17-18 Girls will be competing at the prestigious DIsney Tournament in Orlando over the Holidays – the first Beachside Girls team to be invited there. I am very proud of our Girls coaching staff. Gabriel Stan, Nathan Riddiough, Alin Andrei, and Felipe Ribeiro have worked with patient dedication for many years to improve the soccer landscape for Connecticut girls.”

“I am thrilled for and very proud of these girls” said Gabriel Stan, who has coached this group for the past 4 years. “Many of them have played for us since they were very young players in our Juniors program. They have been totally committed to learning and improving and they have earned this success.”
