Summer Soccer League

 

2017 Love Is Vickery Summer Soccer League

Reaching the kids and youth through soccer

The Vickery summer league is one of the most anticipated kids and youth recreational league in Vickery Meadows. It is a unique league that allows kids and youth, from different parts of the world, to form their own team to compete against each other.

Since 2009, we have been enjoying our own mini-world cup! It is exciting to watch different teams from different ethnic groups playing against each other. We have kids and youth from Afghanistan, Bosnia, Bhutan, Burma/Myanmar, Burundi, Congo, Ethiopia, Iraq, Liberia, Somalia, Sudan, and Tanzania. Once a year, all of them converge to play soccer.

It is our desire to share the love of Christ through our volunteers and support of the different churches and organizations in Dallas.

MISSION

To create a fun, safe, and encouraging environment for the refugee and inner-city kids at Vickery Meadows to make a big impact in their lives.
