"My Husband and I attended the 13th Annual NEHSS Boys Soccer Showcase on Saturday, November 16th with our son. We would like to thank all who made the event a great experience. They started the boys on time, they were well organized and there were a lot of college coaches there watching all the players. We were offered a seminar while our sons was playing soccer. I thought it was just going to be something to get us to spend money. To my surprise I was terribly wrong. The seminar offered loads of important facts as well as helpful information to help our son reach one of his dreams in life, to go on and play soccer after high school. We cannot thank everyone involved in making this Showcase an experience we will always remember." Diane Meal, Parent.
