Rams Arsenal FC U13 team reads to elementary children during Reading Week
Members of the Rams Arsenal FC U13 team donated their time reading to elementary children during Reading Week. They talked to the students on what it takes to be on a premiere team. What practices are like, the intensity of their games, and all the different states that they’ve played in. Way to go Rams Arsenal!
