The $250 donation will help maintain the league and pay for the referees, coaches, and scoring table which will create a good level of structure for the kids. Thank you for your kind donations that have made this first sponsorship take place. We have also donated a full set of uniforms, 20 balls, socks, pumps, and one soccer net.
