Aaron has played and coached at a high level, and he shares many of the same values as our club, including a drive to help develop our local women’s players. We have had a large increase in interest for the upcoming season, and I think we’re going to be very competitive in a difficult Midwest-West conference." - SCFC President Kaden Bergman
