WORLD SPORTS UNITED
Coaches & Players Abroad
WSU is happy to be able to bring players and coaches to our friends at The Buena Vista Boys Sports Academy in Guatemala. The boys in the academy face daily struggles with life in their village and often times miss a male role model in their home to help them through their growth as a young man. Our coaches & players will visit and connect with them and serve as mentors and role models through the common passion of the game of soccer, but at the same time, serve and assist in their community through home building projects and community clean ups.
Our goal is for our coaches and players to serve as an example of how much you can accomplish by discipline, sacrifice and lessons learned through the game. By sharing their own experiences they can hopefully serve as inspiration to the boys in the village.
We are thankful for the chance to extend our WSU family and connect with youth in communities all over the world.
