From August 10th to August 18th, 2013, 64 nations will take part in the 11th edition of the Homeless World Cup annual tournament, taking place in Poznan, Poland. Covenant House Vancouver players are part of the Vancouver Street Soccer League and two of our young people are going to Poland with the Vancouver team. Being involved in sports and athletic activities has many great benefits both physically and mentally. It is a great way for our young people to have healthy fun and meet new friends.
At a recent soccer practice our players were joined by Carl Valentine, Keputa Manneh and Greg Klazura of the Vancouver Whitecaps. It was a wonderful treat for our soccer players and a great boost before they head off to the Homeless World Cup.
