    This team needs to be investigated by the AYSA, their players are older than they claim. The original birth cirtificate must be shown for all players.

  • Happygirl

    Funny you say that(Dennislg) why would aysa have this team playing if indeed they are liying about the girls age.Plus is not about anyone else but except each girl that puts 100% effort in winning.So might I ask to why ur comment.Is this some jealosy issue.I think this team is doing well and may many more wins to come keep up the good an thank you for representing the Verde Valley...An come on lets not initiate a debate is not like we are the any type of candidates.

    Thank you Dennislg for trying to rain on our parade but if you are claiming to know these girls from last season you would have known that the girls were indeed playing up and were going against girls older than them..AYSA checks all forms and DOB before registering the team and our DOB are checked at tournaments. So maybe you should try to praise these girls instead of trying to knock them down..each and every girl on this team is DEDICATED and SKILLED they deserve to be where they are SO please keep an eye out for VVSC Fusion there is more to come. If you have any questions or concerns about my players please feel free to email me I have no problem assisting you in any clarification you may need!<br />Cassondra Olivarez <br />cassolivarez@yahoo.com
