David Villa is the all-time leading goal scorer for Spain’s National Men’s Soccer team. His training methods are respected worldwide. AIA’s main role will be assisting with their player development/leadership training.
This is a huge opportunity for AIA to move our coaching skills to the next level while sharing AIA’s Total Athlete Principles with premier youth soccer players in Spain! The potential impact these players will have over a lifetime, not only in Spain but around the world will be significant.
The project leadership is super pumped about this opportunity. Let’s get a glimpse of their perspective.
“I am excited for the tremendous opportunity the tour gives our student athletes to be challenged in their faith. Every tour is different, but in the ways that make my heart sing, they are the same in seeing new followers of Christ come alive on mission for our heavenly Father.” Zach
“I have always wanted to combine my passions for sports medicine and sports ministry in a different country, and I am so thankful that God has given me this opportunity. I am also looking forward to being immersed in the Spanish culture and utilizing the Spanish I have learned throughout college.” Melanie
“Using soccer as a way to tell others about Jesus is an amazing opportunity! For me, I see this as a moment to invest and help others, but the reality is, I know that my heart and life will be changed.” Jonathan
