FiRst, watch this:
We craft and lead international service trips that connect soccer players to soccer causes, engaging them in the power of their game for achieving impact in the world. We believe deeply in soccer's big-picture potential, take very seriously the quality and safety of our trips, and seek to form real, ethical partnerships with the incredible sport programs that open their doors to our groups.
A LITTLE BACKGROUND...
Woza Soccer is a Seattle-based soccer travel organization for teens that was founded in 2013 by Chris Kaimmer, an American soccer player who has traveled all over the world with the game in his back pocket and Sheldon Hughes, Chris’ close friend and the director of an inspiring soccer academy in the Zulu region of South Africa. We led our first trip in July 2014 - a 3-week adventure to South Africa to train, coach and serve at Sheldon’s soccer academy, where "Woza!" is Zulu soccer slang for "Pass the ball!"
Every Woza trip consists of 10-14 teenage soccer players and 2 highly-trained adult leaders traveling to some of the most beautiful, soccer-loving places on Earth. While there, we play lots of soccer, serve inspiring partner programs and immerse ourselves in the culture of our host community. Our leaders, usually current or former college soccer players, are hand-picked for their love of the game and their experience playing/coaching, working with youth and traveling the world.
Soccer, Every Day
We play soccer every single day on our trips, though the daily dose is just as likely to come through a juggling competition with our safari guides as it is from a formal match with referees. The game we love touches every aspect of a Woza trip, from our daily traditions of trick shot competitions and "Locker Room" ceremonies to lively friendlies with local players where we always mix teams.
