The Immokalee Foundation is currently parterning with local soccer veteran Manny Touron and the Soccer Pit to host a girls’ summer soccer program. Right now 12 middle school and high school girls are actively learning new techniques, developing their soccer skills, and having a blast simply running around and kicking the ball in the summer sun. The program, which hopes to grow in the fall once school begins, is the first of its kind in Immokalee and, so far, has been a success in every sense of the word. 

Fun Fact: Did you know that after trying to gain social acceptance for nearly 60 years, women’s soccer was not introduced into American varsity sports until the late 1980s?
