The annual Miami Springs Virginia Gardens Optimist Club Soccer Awards Ceremony was held on Sunday, February 23rd at Virginia Gardens Field. It was a gorgeous sunny day with a nice breeze that kept the heat at bay and the kids cool.
The annual event honors the teams, coaches, and supporters of the wonderful local program that adds to what makes our community so special. Every child from each team was recognized for their participation. And there were smiles from all the kids.
Below are some of the video highlights we broadcasted live via the MiamiSprings.com Facebook Page:
