TA'LYAH AND TA'LEAH WILLIS KENNEDY

               Hi, my name is Ta’Lyah Willis Kennedy and I have been training with Coach Rose Shoen since I was 9 years old. Today I am 13 years old and I would like to thank Rose for everything she has helped me with. Not only has she pushed me to be successful in sports, but also academically. When I first started training with Rose I had little to no skill. From that day of training I got better. From juggling to running, Rose has built me to be mentally tough on and off the soccer field. At the beginning of training with Rose, it was tough. Before I realized how much she was setting me up for success, I dreaded going to training. But as time went on, I realized how much better I was getting. I went from juggling a soccer ball seven times to juggling a ball over a thousand times. I never thought that I could be this great at juggling. But every practice, we practiced juggling. And every time I got better and better. She always pushed me to break my current record. Rose also gives out academic rewards for getting good grades. This is just one way she has helped me academically. If you get A’s and B’s on your report cards, you will be given a certificate with your name on it and why you earned it. Even though I am only in 8th grade, Rose has already helped me contact college coaches so I have better chances of getting scholarships. She has always reminded me and many other athletes the importance of school. Without Rose I don’t know where I would be. She has helped me and many others and I know she will continue to help me going forward.

Thank you Rose.

Sincerely,

Ta’Lyah Willis Kennedy

               Hi, my name is Ta’Leah Willis Kennedy I am 9 years old and I have played soccer with Rose for four years. Coach Rose is a good coach because she helped me get better at running, juggling, and moves. She has also helped me with school by giving me awards when I get good grades. If I never trained with Rose I wouldn’t be as good at soccer as I am now.

Thank you Rose.

Sincerely,

Ta’Leah Willis Kennedy
