JP Verhees is our Select soccer coach for the U11 and U13 boys teams. He recently made a charitable trip to Zambia that was sponsored by the United States Government and by Meridian Group International of Washington DC. The trip held workshops throughout Zambia to ”empower and develop youth coaches and players” and also to provide nutrition and AIDS prevention education.
Four college-level coaches were involved in the charity project. A soccer club in Washington State donated soccer equipment for the coaches and children, and JP donated copies of his soccer book "SOCCER: Do You Know the Rules" for the project.
