Tanner, We are very proud of you and have enjoyed watching you develop as a player and as a young man. We believe that you have learned crucial life lessons through your involvement in soccer: self discipline, commitment, loyalty, team work, tenacity, to name a few. It is our hope that you will look back on your years with Desert Elite as being meaningful and foundational both in your continued soccer career and in life as a whole. Dad & Mom For 14 years, it has been exciting and fun watching everyone develop into young men. This has been a small step in a successful life ahead, and one we hope everyone will cherish as much as we will! Good Luck! Cathy and Dennis CJ, you have grown into a fine young man. It has been wonderful to watch you grow from the little boy to the young man you are today. We hope these memories are something that will be with you forever. Mom & Dad Phillip joined the team February 2009 and we are very glad he did. It was a good balance of hard work and enjoyment. It has been fun watching the boys interact and their excitement be translated onto the soccer field. Here's to another great year of soccer Phillip. We vote Tony as Coach of the Year!
Michael grew tremendously as a player, and as a person, through his experience with Desert Elite. This club helped him turn a hobby into a passion! It has been an honor to watch you boys grow from goofy little kids to mature young men. We are so proud of each and everyone of you. You all have such promising and exciting futures. We wish you all the best.The Folts Family It has been many years of fun and excitement with 92 Desert Elite for Cody and our family. The team has made him into the player he is and we can't wait to see what the future holds for him at PVCC! Moving here from out of state almost 7 years ago we got involved in the community Desert Elite soccer club. Not only did it provide a competitive and fun soccer experience for Alexander it introduced him to a few of his greatest friends ( mine as well). We have had some wonderful times together We are so grateful for the opportunity to stay local and be a part of a great group of people. Cathy and Dennis Donati you have done so much for our community by providing us with a first rate soccer club. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!! Alexander you are a talented player and it has been a pleasure to watch you grow and progress in this great game. Love, Mom & Dad
