UPSL Vice President Christian Vallejos said, "We're pleased to have West Palm Beach Academy joining the Treasure Coast Division.

We wish them succes as they begin their first UPSL campaign."

There is a lot of talent in this area and we want to show the UPSL that we are ready for better competition," Londono said. "2020 has been a strange year but we feel like now is the time to enter our team into this league because it is getting bigger every year and we want to show that we belong."
