Cabarete Futbol would like to extend a special thanks to Admiral as well as Max and Marhi Self for donating matching jerseys to the entire team. You can check out a video of our players excitement below.
Once again we have changed our practice times. This is to better fit the schedules of the players so that we can get more participants while keeping everyone in school. New practice times are Saturdays at 3pm and Sundays at 9am. Feel free to join us for either of those!
It’s not longer Summer vacation so we can’t do practices during the week due to school. To encourage the kids to continue going to school we have shifted practices to Saturday and Sunday at 4pm.
We have also opened up our field all day to any group of 4 or more kids that would like to practice or play. This way we can get some sessions in during the days before or after the kids have class.
Wednesday was the first practice we got to test our new goals. The kids loved the bigger goals and they made for some exciting practice games. Check out some more pictures below.
Cabarete Futbol just recently received over 20 pairs of cleats as well as shin guards and balls thanks to Patricia and the Mariposa Foundation. They really helped motivate the kids to play harder and better so many thanks!! If you would like to know more about the Mariposa Foundation and some of the amazing work they are doing in the Dominican Republic you can check them out here: http://www.mariposadrfoundation.org
We wanted to extend a special thanks to Ben Draper (blue shirt, far right) for spending a month with the kids as well as bringing some gear down. During his time he implemented good discipline as well as some fun new drills!
Recently our founder Alejandro Harding paid a visit to the D.C. United team at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. The team there was very happy to hear what we were doing with the kids here in the Dominican Republic and showed their support by signing a ball for the kids. We would like to extend a special thanks to the coach, Ben Olsen, for making the visit and signing possible!
