Soccer entities have their message clear- if they can reach the youth they have a fanbase for the future. This is what 560 WQAM personality D.A. (Damon Amendolara) is doing all over South Florida. The former upstate New York native is in an awkward position at that station as he is a confessed soccer fan in a sea of Dolphins and Hurricanes talk; yet he wears that “taboo” as a badge of honor. Not only that, he reaches out to the entire community by not just talking about soccer but by coaching it.

This is why he along with Miami Herald writer and college buddy Adam Beasley are doing their part to grow interest in the sport in the South Florida area by running the Team DA Soccer Camps all over the region. These two along with the help of Miami FC have been able to spread the word about soccer. So far the pebble has caused an interesting ripple.
The latest clinic took place at Rooftop Soccer in Downtown Miami as a good number of campers braved the elements. Although these kids were only able to play on the facility’s synthetic fields and picturesque landscape, they learned some very important lessons in both the game and in life.

They talked about discipline, concentration, and a healthy diet as being key in being a successful soccer player. Even though the rains came down hard for most of the clinic, the message was loud and clear. The most important part was that kids as well as parties involved with setting up the event were able to do their best to have fun despite the conditions.
