Help EJ join USSoccer Team in Spain
Recently, EJ participated in an intensive FCBarcelona soccer clinic. He played in 90+ degree weather and in heavy rain at times but that never dampened his spirit and tenacity!
His efforts earned him a spot in an exclusive soccer clinic and tournament at FC Barcelona Headquarters in Barcelona, Spain! Over 2,500 players were evaluated at 9 camps in the US and less than 10% were selected.
In Barcelona, EJ will participate in advanced and intensive training run by Official FC Barcelona Coaches on the same fields as Messi and Iniesta! He’ll even play on the USA All-Star Team to compete in a tournament against top Barcelona soccer clubs!
This trip will be a once in a lifetime experience that we feel EJ has earned and deserves. He’s such a good kid and an excellent soccer player!
We're asking for help to raise money to fund this trip. In the worst case scenario, one parent can accompany him, but we’re aiming for all four of us to join and support EJ on this trip!
Funds collected will cover the cost of the trip for the four of us (EJ, Elijah, Ed and myself) including airfare.
The trip is from November 18 - 28th, 2016 with payment due in full by October 15, 2016.

EJ and his teammates did their best against they're Spanish opponents, but unfortunately didn't win any games. But it wasn't easy for a newly formed team to play play against established teams (one team was even 1 year older). Anyway, despite the losses (and EJ falling ill during) the trip was still the best time ever!
Here's a link to our photo album. Warning(there are thousands of pictures :)...and videos aren't even uploaded! :) It literally took 3 days to upload them all to shutterfly!
Honestly every little bit helps :)
