Gasparillo and Environs Youth Sports Foundation 2018 .
Sport and travel are two of our passions, so being able to combine them in projects is something we get excited about.

These exchange allows kids opportunities to travel, bond and learn about other countries as well as to have fun.

It was our pleasure to recruit this team for the inaugural Women’s Premier Football League in 2015 in Trinidad and Tobago. This fantastic opportunity for athletes both foreign and local allowed them to show off their skills and to make important contacts in the world of football. As the team chaperones, we accompanied the group as they discovered Trinidad and Tobago and enjoyed our culture.
Deportivo Saprissa 2015
Deportivo Saprissa is one of the most succesful teams in Costa Rica and by extension Costa Rica. In 2015 they came to Trinidad and Tobago to play the return leg of their Scotiabank Champions League match against W Connection. As the team’s liaison officer it was my role to ensure communication between the team and the organizers. As a liaison officer groups comes to you for all manner of requests and it is up to you and the team to ensure their requests can be met. The team enjoyed their stay and even had an opportunity to train at the iconic St Mary’s College grounds.
