Rockdale Youth Soccer Association is proud to partner with Haitian Christian Mission and the Play It Forward program this Fall. RYSA players and their families will have an opportunity to travel to Haiti to take part in and lead soccer clinics for the kids and coaches at Fond Parisien. We will deliver much needed donations including soccer equipment, uniforms, cleats and other everyday necessities. While there, we will also participate in other projects like painting buildings and small construction or cleaning projects.
Since 1974, the Haitian Christian Mission has strived to show Haiti Christ's love through education, medical care, food, employment, and child sponsorship. Their mission is to feed the Body, Mind, and Spirit of the Haitian People. The Play It Forward program was extablished in 2011 to promote education, healthy lifestyles and biblical principles. The program stresses leadership skills and community development through sports and mentorship.
The trip will run from October 4 - 10, 2014. The trip will cost approximately $1100. We hope to take a group from Rockdale Youth Soccer of 18 - 30 people. Anyone ages 13 and above are invited to participate, regardless of club affiliation. Spots will be open for the trip by player's age according to the deadline chart below.
