Jake Gareis selected for USYF National Team
Being selected to the US Youth Futsal National Team was a great experience for Jake! The regional tryouts were held in early June in Akron, OH. From there he was selected to go to the National tryouts in Kansas City in late June. He was very excited to be one of 2 goalies selected for the 2003 boys team. The US Youth Futsal organization took 6 teams to Medellin, Colombia, boys and girls teams for birth years 2003, 2002, 2000. Jake’s 2003 team tied their first game but lost the next two. The games were all competitive and Jake had a blast. In addition to the three game days, there was a day of futsal training, a team bonding excursion day, and a day for small-group local activities. Unfortunately Jake missed the futsal training day due to weather related travel issues. A fair number of players missed their connections due to weather in Miami, Jake included. Medellin was a beautiful, large city in a mountain valley. Medellin is known as the City of Eternal Spring for good reason. The weather was excellent all week. With the scenery and language, there was no doubt you were in a foreign country, which was great.
