This past August, the Concordia Women's Soccer team traveled to Costa Rica for two weeks. On the trip, the girls got to play against regional teams, site see, and additionally, give back to the local children.
Before the trip, the team conducted an apparel fundraiser through InSports Apparel. Using a portion of the money they raised from the fundraiser the team purchased pennies, cones, jerseys, and soccer balls, which they later donated to a low-income soccer organization in Costa Rica.
During their second day in Costa Rica, the Cobbers hosted a clinic for the players. There were over 190 boys and girls ages 4-13. Prior to their arrival, the program only had 4 soccer balls on hand, which was extremely insufficient for practicing and playing.
From the Concordia girls' perspective, "the language barrier was hard at first but once the kids got dribbling and laughing it was all smiles till the final whistle blew."
The children and parents of the organization were overjoyed to see brand new equipment at the completion of the clinic.
InSports would like to thank the Concordia Women's Soccer team for the impact they made on the children in this community. Soccer is a huge part of the Costa Rican culture, and all kids should have the chance to play!
