Perhaps most impactful has been the enduring friendships cultivated during Avalanche’s CUSA existence. Incidentally, Francisco has played a central role in this, helping to house international players, host team BBQs and foster a culture of respect and kindness…

"He's too humble to mention these things but I will say them for him -whether he likes it or not!) We have shared exceptional moments with one another, on and off the pitch."

Because of the inclusive and unifying culture we have cultivated over the years, players have grown to enjoy spending time together away from the game as well. From camping trips to get-togethers at each others’ homes, to wedding celebrations – even to international travel together (!!), we have forged bonds of friendship extended to every new member upon his arrival. We are also now at a stage where a number of our teammates (past and present) have started families; their spouses and children are now extended members of the Avalanche family.
