TrueBrit Posted May 16, 2013 Report Share Posted May 16, 2013 Union Ajijic is the youth soccer program for underserved kids in our community. It provides a positive alternative to the streets. There are about 30 - 40 kids involved in three age-groups. This Saturday is the final game of this season and we wanted to offer the community a chance to show their support by coming along and watching the game (or part of it). Soccer is a big part of the Mexican community and this is an excellent opportunity to be a part of it. And it's FREE! But if you want to be a real hero, you can bring along a soccer ball ($9 from Walmart - SIZE 5). For bringing a ball, we will take your photo with a very grateful team and have the team sign their thank-you's, and add your name to the title to demonstrate your support of the community. There will be someone at the entrance who will greet you and make the arrangements (no Spanish needed). The game this Saturday for the senior team will be at 1pm at the Cruz Azul field. The field is easy to find - it is next to Plaza Bugambillas and it borders the carretera. The entrance is two large blue gates on the street by the Plaza (the same street on which the tiangis is held). Our team is easy to spot - we are the only team in the league without any uniforms. We can't afford any, so they wear blue 'casacas' - a bit like cashier vests. If you in the market for some art, renowned local artist Liz Skelsey has some beautiful paintings for sale with all proceeds going to the team. Rather than asking for money, we would like to invite your involvement. You can be a part of Union Ajijic either giving your time, expertise or much needed equipment. We will soon have a little website running, but if you want to know more we have a Facebook group called 'Union Ajijic'. Or just contact me through this forum. Thank you.
