Director of Coaching Giuseppe DePalo is a believer in the UPSL's Pro/Rel Model, and the club is building the backbone for what is sure to be a competitive program for seasons to come.

We have a few guys coaching in the club who are former college players of mine and are still young and fit and ready to play. We'll have an interesting group and we're excited to get started. I think we'll do quite well. We're in a location to get players from Broward County down to South Miami and into the city, so we're in a pretty centrally-located area."
