NH based America's Team to play softball in Spain
From July 14-22, 2014, America’s Team New Hampshire will be participating in an exciting and challenging tour of Spain, stopping to play softball games in the cities of: Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona. The team is comprised of NH based varsity athletes that possess a good attitude, strong academics, excellent character and a passion for the game of softball.
Why am I sharing this here at Mommycosm?
I have the honor of being the head coach for this team. Yes, I'm still coaching at the high school. In fact, 5 of my players are now on the roster.
My travel bucket list puts Spain just under my top 5 choices: Australia, Italy, Ireland, Bali & Egypt. The opportunity isn't something that comes around every day, so I embraced it. Recruiting has been interesting. It was fairly easy at first to find a core team. We're still looking to round out the roster with a couple of players. You know, just in case someone gets sick or injured traveling or needs a break in the hot, summer in Spain weather. Some of our players have never flown on an airplane before... that should be fun and interesting.
We're working on securing sponsors. The cost per player is around $4k and we are hoping to reduce their out-of-pocket expenses as much as possible. If you are a brand or a company seeking unique advertising opportunities, please check out our Sponsor page. You can follow along our journey on our website.
America's Team has a motto of "changing lives through sports". What an amazing opportunity this to do just that.
