Soccer at Northbrook is here! The JV soccer team is now 5-0 after a victory against CyRidge on Tuesday, February 8th. Soccer is all bout defense. There’s also more that come with it like building team friendships and many more. Soccer can have up to 11 players on the field. It’s about scoring goals. We asked a few questions to Brianna Cantu

What is soccer to you?

Family environment is incapable of being replicated by clubs and provides unparalleled camaraderie,” said Cantu. It also offers more off-the-field behavioral accountability.

Trying out for the high school soccer team can be tough but rewarding. It’s a big commitment, but you will learn a lot in the process, not only about soccer, but also about how to challenge yourself. A game is played by two teams of eleven players with a round ball that may not be touched with the hands or arms during play except by the goalkeepers. The object of the game is to score goals by kicking or heading the ball into the opponents’ goal. 

Cantu said, “that she and her team are hungry for more wins and willing to put it all out on the field.”
