Jill Ellis offers remarks before presenting awards. She addressed the young players in the room by saying that club soccer, “Truly is a platform to help you build for the rest of your life.” Ellis went on to say that, “You’ve learned resilience. You’ve dealt with failure. You’ve cried. You’ve laughed. Sport is not sport, it’s a gift. And when you can play with your friends at club soccer, it truly is something that I think if you go forward, you’ll take those lessons with you.”
