The uniform colors for the bilingual school have been picked!! Special thanks to Nic Martino, Evelis Rivera and the MVHS students who donated to cover the cost of some of these uniforms for the kids. Can't wait for the first group of teachers to arrive later this summer..
Our U-10 Villa Soleada F.C. Boys Team (Villa kids and children's home kids united) played a game against another team at the cage soccer field today. We won and more importantly, we didn't have any fist fights or brawls -- a miracle!! Abelito must have scored 5 goals at least. All the training with Coach Wilson and Coach Tono are paying off maybe...? If you would like to support our soccer program, we accept all kinds of used soccer equipment (jerseys, cleats, pinnies, cones, balls, Etc)!
Today was our first day at soccer practice for the U-10 boys from Villa Soleada. We have about 15 boys from the village and 6 boys from the children's home playing together. Wilson and Tono are going to be coaching them four times per week. The two are brothers and are respected fathers in the community. They both also work for our organization as professional masons. Tono has actually been moved up to become one of our site managers. The first day at soccer practice was more like the first day at MMA practice... Every time I broke up a fight, there was another fight breaking out behind me. But I think the kids had a good time. Let's hope that Wilson and Tono don't get too discouraged because the kids can get so out of control when they are excited.
