This July, Genesis FC will be traveling from Des Moines, Iowa to Target USA CUP at the National Sports Center. Since it is their first time at USA CUP, Genesis FC is eager to take in all that this experience has to offer.
Genesis FC is Genesis Youth Foundation’s competitive soccer program. Genesis Youth Foundation was created in 2009 to level the playing field for African youth in Central Iowa. Many players are African immigrants and refugees, and this program has created an opportunity for these athletes to pursue their passion for playing competitive soccer. The Genesis Youth Foundation offers a variety of other opportunities in addition to soccer such as dancing, fashion, culinary arts, and more.
Sam Gabriel, the co-founder of the Genesis Youth Foundation and coach for Genesis FC, explained that USA CUP is a unique experience for the club because it allows players to travel while playing the sport that they love.
Genesis FC will be bringing 22 players to USA CUP. These players are ready to bring their A-game and continue their winning streak after going undefeated in all six of their matches in the Iowa Premier League earlier in the season.
Welcome to Target USA CUP, Genesis FC!
