This past summer we had an awesome time on the SC Eintracht Oberursel field with about 70 kids from Oberursel and the surrounding areas. Not only were we honing our soccer skills but also learning important life skills like teamwork, honesty, integrity, respect and more.
From 10-14 July kids came together to build relationships and exercise their minds and bodies. They were coached by leaders in the community, people who have a passion for the game of soccer and a deep love for others.
Through the game of soccer young boys and girls saw firsthand how cooperation is a necessary component in life. They began to understand that respect for others is a non-negotiable, and perhaps most importantly, they learned that there is Hope! It matters that we keep trying and keep pursuing our life’s calling – perseverance is a must!
Champions in Life was a milestone in our community. It brought people from different nations and backgrounds together; for one week there was a great harmony in Oberursel – people linking arms for good.
We want to thank the parents for entrusting their children to us (a huge honor for our team), those at ICF who helped to make this camp a reality, the City of Oberursel for the support they provided, SC Eintracht Oberursel for providing facilities free of charge, REWE for donating a generous amount of snacks for each child for the entire week of camp, and all the volunteers who gave their time, resources and hands to make such an event possible. Last but definitely not least, we thank God for his blessing on this event, without whom something of this scale would have not been possible for us.
Plans are already in the works for CIL 2018! Be on the lookout for it next year!
