THE ROAD TO TAMPA, FLORIDA 2020
Good afternoon! Kalonji Soccer Academy is an amazing 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization run by Atlanta Youth Soccer Association, that helps many underprivileged children in the metro Atlanta area. Our academy is going into its 6th year and it has not been without many obstacles and challenges. For many of the boys, soccer is not only a sport but a way of life, a safety zone away from the drug and gang infested area of Clarkston, Georgia and it’s surroundings. On any given day you will see both our van and bus driving through Clarkston, Stone Mountain, and Lilburn at roughly 5:00 o'clock almost every day picking up close to 100 children and transporting them to their soccer training sessions, games and tournaments, and on their return the same route is taken! Our academy has various teams that play at National League level, in July our 2001 team won the championship title in Overland Park, Kansas . All of this only as a result of many volunteers, parents, coaches, friends and family who support the academy through our fundraising or any way they can help, but most importantly through the players hard work and dedication. As a result of our hard work and qualification to the National League we have various showcases that we are invited to play in where only the best of the best go! Unfortunately most of our boys do not have the means to pay for these trips which can be expensive. The exposure these boys get to college scouts is an amazing opportunity for them as this often times leads to possible scholarships! Most of our boys come to the US as refugees where they are fleeing war infested countries among many other atrocities in their home countries! We are looking for caring, kind hearted people who might have an interest in sponsoring these boys or making a donation! We invite you to further communicate with us as we can give more information as well! We have a trip coming up to Tampa, Florida from December 27-30, 2020 for a showcase . with an amzing opportunity to have automatic qualification to National Leaugue Championship in Overland Park, Kansas in July. Any contribution is appreciated and remember no donation is to small!
