 2018 MTF Trip

Coach Katherine Lord just finished her extended volunteer experience of 4 months in Belize building the More Than Fútbol program at Holy Cross School. Katherine provided empowerment classes in the mornings and an after-school futbol program for children ages 4-14.
Coach Alex traveled to the US last summer from Nicaragua to undergo a Coach training program with Coach Ali and Champions Soccer. Coach Alex returned to Nicaragua prepared to help develop the program.

More Than Fútbol is a program that uses soccer to teach positive values and life skills to children in Central America. These children live in extreme poverty without much opportunity or direction in how to create a better life for themselves. Our goal is to use the sport to help direct them down a better path that provides hope, encouragement and teaches the necessary life skills to create success: work ethic, confidence, teamwork, discipline, etc. 
Located in Baltimore, MD, More Than Fútbol draws the majority of its support from the local Baltimore soccer community.
