After the distribution of soccer equipment to the kids in the villages, the elderly people in the village ask Rush administrator to set up soccer teams for the kids to compete against other villages. U5, U8 and U9 teams have been set up to play in a developmental league this year playing against other eastern villages. With a shortage of coaches, the village has decided to work jointly with the City of Kenema to develop a more positive soccer experience for these age groups by sending soccer players from the town first division team to train the kids bi-weekly. These young people would be happy to know that someone cares enough to share these soccer supplies. Thank you for taking a little time to read about the changes Rush is bringing to children in Sierra Leone, and, with your encouragement, we hope that some of these kids will become the next African soccer star.
