Penn State Women’s Soccer Raising Money For Soccer Without Borders Trip To Nicaragua

The Lady Lions soccer team will head to Granada, Nicaragua over spring break for a nine-day community service trip called Soccer Without Borders. Soccer Without Borders is an international nonprofit organization that uses soccer as a way to help underprivileged communities.

Penn State women’s soccer serves as a partner to this organization and will help run and coach soccer clinics for girls while staying with families in Nicaragua.

Women’s soccer is seeking donations to fund its trip over spring break. There’s plenty of time left to donate to this trip, and all donations can be made here. Thus far, the squad has raised $6,000 of its $15,200 goal.

The team will also have the chance to play with and against the Nicaraguan women’s national team during the break. During this trip, players will have the opportunity to learn a new language and experience life in a new culture — all through the communal love of soccer.
