Next fall, TSA will have a remolded clubhouse at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park. It is expected to be ready by the fall of 2013. With the help of the local soccer community, TSA will have a facility with a workout room, a television to review game tape and office/meeting rooms.
The building will be named the Ann Kathryn Schmidt Kickin’ It Clubhouse.
"We’re going to spend at least $100,000 in renovating it and making it into a clubhouse for kids who play soccer, a place where they can do homework while they’re waiting for practice, where they can have team meetings," Ted Schmidt, president of the Tucson Soccer Academy, told the Arizona Daily Star.
The entire project and renovations will cost about $200,000, Schmidt said.
Ted is the husband of the late Ann Schmidt, who passed away nearly two years ago from terminal breast cancer. Ann was a TSA team manager for eight years. Schmidt said it’s "a marvelous example of partnership between the private sector and the county."
