BENEFITING: BERKS SOCCER ACADEMY INC
I am trying to help raise money for my high school girls soccer team to travel to Norway to participate in the Norway Cup the worlds largest youth soccer tournament. Last year we hosted the U16 Norway Girls Soccer team from Oslo, Norway while they participated in the USA Cup in Blaine, MN. It was a fantastic experience for my girls and the U16 girls team from Norway. The Norway team wants us to come to Norway and stay with them and participate in the Norway Cup!
My players attend a public school and many of them work in their free time to pay for their day to day lives. Many of them play other sports that require them to fund raise on their behalf so asking these already over worked students to raise enough money to pay for this great adventure is hard to do but despite the obstacles they are happy to raise funds for this great opportunity.
My goal is to raise as much money on their behalf so they do not have to sacrifice their precious time and of course lighten the burden of parents who will most likely carry the brunt of the costs.
The money will go towards air travel, minimal room and board since we will be hosted by another team and finally a daily food and fun stipend for each girl in attendance. All parents and coaches will pay their own way. 100% of the money donate will go to the players costs of traveling to Norway.
