Dear LSA Sharks Family:
We are proud to announce the Inaugural LSA Sharks Awards Gala on Saturday evening January 14th from 6:30-8:30pm.
LSA’s Board of Directors has initiated this Awards Gala in an effort to celebrate the mission of the club, honor coaches, recognize teams and award individual players and volunteers in the Recreational, Academy and Select programs.
This event will also promote LSA’s unique vision of impacting our community and raise additional funds to support the Sharks Scholarship & Financial Aid Fund. All tickets cost just $30 each.
As our futsal training partner, Rockport Soccer will serve as host for this event from 6:30-8:30pm on Saturday, January 14th. They have already hosted major community dinner events like this at their facility.
You won’t want to miss this great celebration of soccer with family, friends and teammates! This dinner event will feature former MLS player Matt Horth as our keynote speaker. Matt Horth turned professional in 2011 when he signed with the Atlanta Silverbacks of the North American Soccer League. In a game against the Carolina Railhawks on July 3, 2012, Horth made history by becoming the first player to score a goal under the professional coaching career of U.S. soccer legend Eric Wynalda. Horth went on to play with the New England Revolution in MLS, Leiknir Reykjavik in Europe, and would eventually return to the Silverbacks in 2015. During his professional career, Horth has played against iconic players such as Thierry Henry, Mikel Silvestre, Raúl, Marcos Senna, and Clint Dempsey. He coaches at Cambridge High School and resides in Forsyth County, GA with his wife, Jessica.
