The Collier County Democratic Party is partnering with the Immokalee Soccer School and Academy for the 2017-18 season. The Academy seeks to encourage academic and athletic success as reflected in their motto – ‘Discipline, Respect, Love, Learning.”
Founded in 2001 by a former Mexico City professional soccer player, Gabriel Mejia, this league for children ages 8 – 15 divides its Saturday practices between educational support and exercises on the field. Mejja’s group of enthusiastic youngsters has already funded a trip to Mexico City and is currently involved in plans to visit Spain.
