Coach Greg Fish is producing a film about his team of girl soccer players from Monte Vista High School, and he plans to release it in theaters next year, he said.
The film is an inspiring story about young women finding their way using the sport of soccer, Fish said. It chronicles the reasons why his team plays soccer and what happens behind the scenes.
"We are hoping it's more universal," he said. "It's why they do this and what they get out of it."
He added that the film captures the whole team bonding and has interviews of parents with kids.
His production company, Global Media Group, has collected 350 hours of footage since October. Moreover, he has eight camera professionals following and filming his team.
"We devoted some really talented (people)," he said.
A production this size may cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, he said. He plans on taking it to a film festival in the fall.
The team defeated Foothill High School of Pleasanton at the girl's North Coast Section semifinals Feb. 21 but lost to San Ramon Valley High at the finals Saturday.
