David's Soccer Journey to Holland
The purpose of this trip is to get training, playing time and an assessment of his level of play from professional coaches in Netherlands. David's goal is to play professional soccer overseas and this very important trip is necessary for him to reach his goal. While in Netherlands, he will take in a couple pro soccer games and practice with Denison University, who will be visiting from
David is scheduled to leave Atlanta on August 3, 2015 and arrive in Amsterdam, Netherlands on August 4, 2015. He will then travel by train from Shipohl to Nijgemen by train. His expected return to Atlanta may change depending on his level of play.
David plays right back, is extremely athletic, very fast on the field, and aggressive when defending and handling the ball. He truly loves the game and is always practicing to hone his skills.
I pray you find it in your heart to bless David with a donation for his trip to Holland. No donation is too big or small. Thank you!
