What ingredients make a team great? Is it the best players? The best coaches? The best gear and training facilities? What makes a great team work is great teamwork, plain and simple.

As the sun warms the mid-March air, and fields everywhere begin to bustle with activity, it is a sure-fire sign that the indoor soccer season is coming to a close.

In a few weeks, the snow we be completely melted, the fields will be dry and outdoor soccer will once again flourish for the spring, summer and fall months.
