THE STORY:

Coaches are the real changemakers.

This holiday season, “Play It Forward” by investing in a Soccer Without Borders coach in Nicaragua.

Great coaches are teachers, leaders, confidants, mentors, advocates, and role models. Our coaches work tirelessly in these roles, yet they face challenging circumstances to create positive, inclusive learning environments. Girls in Granada, Nicaragua face tremendous challenges: 28% are pregnant by age 18, 52% do not complete primary school, many are expected to raise younger siblings. The chance to become engaged and educated members of society is slim; there are obstacles at every turn. While sport and sports teams have been proven to address these challenges, particularly with girls, 90% of girls in Nicaragua report barriers to participation, and just 13% report playing sports, formally or informally.

A team, led by an inspirational coach, can be the most powerful change agent in a young girl's development, proven to inspire healthy choices regarding drugs, sex, alcohol, academics, and nutrition. The right coach creates a team environment where these obstacles can be overcome. The right coach becomes a changemaker in the lives of youth who bravely confront some of the most significant obstacles of their generation. The right coach makes all the difference. 

When you Play It Forward, you deepen the impact of SWB and empower a coach to change a young person's life.
