Jeremy Jacob's Fundraiser:

For these kids, soccer is more than just a game

THE STORY:

BWG Boys '99 Blue is a nationally-ranked Queens, NY-based soccer team. We're hoping to raise enough money to send our talented players to spring tournaments that will give them valuable exposure and experience as they grow as student-athletes.

Our team reflects the diversity of NYC with boys from Uruguay, Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina, Mexico, England, Portugal, Greece, Italy and Russia. Many of these players are first generation immigrants, and will be the first in their families to go to college.

All funds raised will go towards the high cost of tournament travel expenses including registration, airfare, hotels and equipment. We hope to attend a prestigious tournament in Dallas in April and another in San Diego in July. These important tournaments are attended by college scouts who are looking for high school players like ours.

Research shows participating in youth sports supports academic achievement by offering a structured schedule to assist with task completion, engenders strong perceptions of school belonging to increase motivation and is associated with a pro-social peer group (Fredericks & Eccles, 2005). Also, increased mental alertness from the physical activity that youth sport offers helps cognitive functioning, increases blood flow to the brain and enhances mood. (Bailey, 2006).

BWG Boys '99 Blue is part of Blau Weiss Gottschee, a 501c3 club with a 60+ year heritage of providing youth soccer in the community. For more information on BWG, please visit: www.bwgottschee.org.
