U.S. Amputee Soccer Team
We are excited to announce that Tressler attorney Andrew Paine will be competing as a member of the U.S. National Amputee Soccer Team at the 2023 Amp Football Cup. The team will square off against Poland, England, Japan and Costa Rica in Warsaw, Poland on September 16-17, 2023.

“As some of you know, in March of 2022 I was in a snowmobile accident that resulted in significant injuries, including the amputation of my right leg just above the knee,” said Andrew Paine. “Now, a little more than a year later, I am honored and humbled to represent the United States as a member of the U.S. National Amputee Soccer Team. Thank you all for your tremendous support.”

Tressler LLP is honored to support Andrew and the American Amputee Soccer Association (AASA), and the firm has donated $1,000 to the AASA’s new dollar-for-dollar matching fundraising campaign.

About the American Amputee Soccer Association

The American Amputee Soccer Association has dual missions. One mission is to promote and develop the sport for the benefit of participants with limb differences. The Association accomplishes this through outreach programs at the local levels to help interested players become introduced to the sport, maximize their proficiency, build self confidence, learn the power of teamwork and build a strong social network. The AASA’s second mission is to select, develop and train elite amputee soccer athletes to represent the United States in international competition. Click here to learn more.
