U9 RSC Lightning 
years, he moved into the development league and then began his travel soccer experience at the age of 9.  Luciano and his family credit not only the club, but all of the coaches that he has had over the years.  "I wouldn't be where I am today without the dedication of all my coaches.  Not only have I learned so much from them, they made me love playing soccer." said Luciano when asked about his love for the game.  

During his 10 years with the club, Luciano's favorite memory was taking a team trip to Spain and enjoying the Barcelona stadium with his teammates.

"My dream is to play professional soccer and on the national team someday!"
