The Milwaukee Kickers Soccer Club is an organization that exemplifies its mission to enrich the lives of the people it serves. As I began to learn more about the sport and club I started to understand just how much positive impact the soccer club has on a person’s life.
The athletes are taught hard work and good sportsmanship that rubs off on everyone they come in contact with. During tournaments I was able to witness this firsthand. I also saw this when I had the chance to help the America SCORES Milwaukee, MKSC's community outreach program, team and see the kids’ faces light up as they dribbled around the field.
Over my past three months as intern with the Kickers, I was also able to see how powerful a collaborative staff can be. The ability to meet with all the intelligent, passionate, and caring staff members was not something I took for granted and a very enjoyable experience. In addition, the management, marketing, and communication skills I learned will be advantageous in whatever career field I enter.
I am very thankful to everyone at MKSC for the opportunity to be a part of the club and for the lessons I learned along the way.
