Rhino USA Trip Details

this is an incredibly exciting and special time for us here at bvsa!  in two weeks, we will be arriving with our varsity rhinos for a 10 day trip in the USA!  they are unbelievably excited (giddy) as we prepare for the big trip.
from an "opportunity standpoint", this trip will be nothing less than unimaginable. the exposure and experience alone could help mold these guys into young men that will have "seen the world" outside their little village.  i pray they'll bring back a certain confidence that will help them be better future leaders of Buena Vista.
from a "soccer standpoint", this will be interesting!  we'll be playing high-level, US-select teams.  those of you that know our boys already know... we're much smaller!  but we're scrappy.  the boys are nervous!  how will we match up?  no matter what happens, it will be exciting just to be there

will you come out and support the boys?  imagine how special they would feel if the field was packed... surrounded by all of their "gringo friends" cheering them on!!
take a second and think about life in their village... remember the life of extreme poverty where they come from...  and consider how AMAZING it would feel to be cheered on by screaming fans - while playing their favorite sport in the USA!!
please come out and help make these guys feel like the champions they already are!  then come spend time with them at one of the scheduled post-game "rhino fiestas"!
