Soccer and Life…

Hilliard Free Lunch Summer Camp for Kids

July 1st, 2014 Crew & RELC


At our summer program today, at our Resurrection Evangelical Lutheran Church site, we were blessed to have a former Columbus Crew defender come as one of our Special Guests to speak to us about soccer and how the game can teach you valuable life lessons.


Not everyone can be a professional soccer player or even a professional athlete, but the lessons he taught the kids can always be applied to whatever they aspire to be some day.  We talked about how important both listening and hard work are while you work towards your dream.  We also spoke about how both soccer and life are both about making decisions.  If you make good life decisions, the outcome will be great!  If you make poor life decisions, the opposite is true.


With the World Cup in full swing, the campers are obsessed with soccer!!!!   To have a real life soccer player come speak to the kids about the importance of a good attitude, hard work, and practice was amazing for the kids and really helped drive these messages home!


At SON Ministries, through PARTNERSHIPS,

we strive TOGETHER for the very BEST for our community
