Our mission is to provide a safe environment to support underprivileged youth by engaging them through sports, camaraderie, teamwork and commitment. By providing a safe environment, children are engaged and shown the importance of education, avoiding drugs and avoiding those wanting to do them harm. Not only do we aim to improve their soccer skills but also teach them to work together, distinguish right from wrong and show them the beauty and opportunities that life has to offer through example and discipline. Our goal is to enrich the lives of disadvantaged youth and guide them to fulfill their potential. LOCATION:

Suggested Donation is 25 USD

Where does your donation go?
95 USD = One fully geared player with their own ball.
55 USD = Shoes and socks for one player
25 USD = Shirt and pants uniform
15 USD = Shin guards
10 USD = Small backpack for kids to put their gear
20-40 USD = One ball (we prefer better made balls as they last a lot longer)
2 USD = Water for one practice Sponsor a player:
By donating any monthly amount you can sponsor a player. What this will do is every time you donate, that money gets put aside until one or all of the above can be purchased for that player. If that player already has a full set up then it will go to another player who has yet to be fully geared. Once all players are geared, sponsoring a player will help pay for the coaches, field maintenance and coaching supplies (in order of what is needed most).
On Friday our founder Alejandro came down and suited up one of our players to play as goalie. We put a helmet, gloves, goggles, padded clothing and more and set a couple of players to shoot the ball at the same time. Lots of laughs and fun was the result. Check out the video below!
Yesterday we had practice for the younger kids. We started out with about 8 kids but by the end of practice we had a nice group of around 15. We practiced ball control and ended with a small game. The practices are going a lot smoother now that we have them divided into age groups! We are missing some soccer balls as there are more kids arriving now that it has been divided.
We would like to thank everyone who came out to support our first event ever! We will be announcing the winner soon and apologize for the late updates. We managed to raise 3,000 rd for the foundation which will be used to purchase some soccer cleats for our players! A special thank you to Fresh Fresh, Vela, Lax and 321 Take Off for sponsoring the event!
We would like to extend a special thank you to Jade Adele for creating our very first banner. It has been printed and will be featured at tomorrow event. You can check out what will be happening tomorrow in the previous post.
We have once again changed our practice times to better suit the schedules of our players. You can find us practicing Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm in the Callejon De La Loma, Cabarete. Hope to see you there!
