RYSA teaming up with Crosspoint Christian Church's Haitian Christian Mission

On Saturday, October 4th, 2014, the ten best players of Rockdale Youth Soccer Association (RYSA) ranging in age from 13 to 18 along with coaching director Rafe Mauran will be travelling to Haiti on a seven-day mission trip. The participants will provide soccer day camps in elementary schools and orphanages in Haiti. Their other service project will include delivering food to those in need, book bags filled with school supplies, visit to a playground project and meeting other needs of the school children. To make this trip a success, organizers are seeking donation and supplies from the community. The supplies they are requesting as donation within September 28 may include: (a) slightly used cleats (size 5 to 14 with shoestrings), (b) slightly used book bags (zippers in working condition), (c) pencil, crayon or markers, (d) protein bars, and (e) power packs of Gatorade energy drinks. All checks and monetary donation payable to Haitian Christian Mission are tax-deductible.


Monetary donation received will reduce the cost of the air ticket for the participant and further help to provide food for the Haitian children taking part in the soccer camps.

RYSA has teamed up on a Haitian Christian Mission with CrossPoint Christian Church's in a sports program "Play it Forward". 'Play it Forward' is a worldwide nonprofit organization and a part of CrossPoint's sports ministry. The Church believes that playing sports is a great way to build character and make lasting friendships. Taking part in a healthy competition itself is an honorable act; it is far more important than mere winning--it is an important part of being human. The seven-day mission trip to Fonds-Parisien, Haiti is a huge step in the direction of service for Rockdale Youth Soccer Association.
