In addition, Kwik Goal will be working with U.S. Soccer's technical staff in designing new training products and will be supporting U.S. Soccer's Development Academy. "In this day and age, the word "partner" is often overused. That is certainly not the case when it comes to the outstanding relationship that Kwik Goal has enjoyed for many years now with U.S. Soccer," said Anthony Caruso, President of Kwik Goal. "We take great pride in supplying our country's national teams and are committed to meeting U.S. Soccer's equipment standards for quality and safety for years to come". "Supporting the soccer coaching community has been a key pillar for Kwik Goal since our company's founding thirty years ago," added Done Wetmore, V.P. of Sales and Marketing. Having an opportunity to work with U.S. Soccer as a Technical Partner is a tremendous opportunity for Kwik Goal and very much in line with our company's heritage and customer focus". "From my earliest days of playing for the Men's National Team, Kwik Goal equipment was used during our training and at the many domestic stadiums we played in," said Claudio Reyna, U.S. Soccer's Youth Technical Director and former Men's National Team captain. "We're looking forward to Kwik Goal working closer with the U.S. Soccer Development Academy and providing the best young players in the country with access to the highest quality equipment in soccer." Kwik Goal was founded in 1981, and is celebrating its 30th year as a soccer goal manufacturer. For about half of that time, Kwik Goal has been working with U.S. Soccer and the National Teams. Kwik Goal is also an Official Supplier to U.S. Youth Soccer and Molde FK in Norway.
