Here is a long but fun update on Ultimate Frisbee development in Eurasia!

Our work is oriented on creating sports teams in Eurasia. We are forming sport teams in different sport directions. We hold sport conferences. We had one conference and a leader returned to his native town and started to play Ultimate Frisbee with some youth. And in short period of time, a team was formed. They appealed to the local government and asked for sports field for training. The government saw the presentation of a new kind of sport and agreed. Due to this presentation of Ultimate Frisbee, a new team in another town was formed. The local government gave a permission to visit local educational institutions to invite youth to come and learn how to play Ultimate Frisbee.

When the team from another country went back home, they decided to go on a trip to visit another city, in the South of their country. 5 leaders of the team went along, and for three days they are going out to Central Park to get acquainted with local youth and to learn how to play Ultimate Frisbee. From that trip, another sport team was formed in this town.

We were able to have another conference. There were three teams in Ultimate Frisbee from three different cities. There were 30 young men. They got acquainted with each other, played matches in Ultimate Frisbee, made plans, formed common vision and ways of development of sports in the country.

Thanks to Ball Project, we were able to buy most needed equipment for trainings in those towns where teams were formed (active and newly formed). We bought practice jerseys, cones, bibs, disks. 8 teams from 3 countries received training sets.

Here is an encouraging update from one of our partners in Ukraine:

Last Bell Ministries works with orphanage graduates in Zhytomyr, Ukraine. Most recently, the Ball Project helped us install Foosball tables and purchase other supplies for soccer and games.

One orphanage graduate is studying to combine youth leadership development and soccer. We helped her with balls and other supplies for a soccer group she coaches. Her caption for the photo: “This is how we LOST four goals!” She is helping kids like herself – including orphans – learn how to play, including the daydreaming part!

Here is a short but sweet update from one of our partners in Mali:

We have recently trained 24 new whole life football coaches. At the end of the training each coach received a ball and 6 cones.

These new coaches have made plan to each set up a team in their community.
We will follow up to help and support each of them to make soccer fields open places for mentoring and sports and leadership development.
