Victory Soccer School remembers the late co-founders Haig Dikranian (left) and Efrain 'Chico' Chacurian (right). In addition to being co-founders, they will be remembered for their passion and love for teaching kids, desire to have fun, and helping others on and off the field. 


The Victory Soccer School staff wishes that every camper that comes to camp can experience as much fun and enjoyment that Haig and Chico experienced over the years.
