Soccer is Going to Spain
Aug. 19, 2016

Boise State women's soccer will be adventuring to Barcelona and San Sebastian Spain in 2017. This trip will serve as a once-in-a-lifetime learning opportunity to train with world-class soccer clubs, explore a new culture and provide service opportunities with those less fortunate.

Women's soccer is not an extracurricular activity at Boise State, it is an education all its own. For the past 18 months the team has focused on a rigorous course of study in the areas of humility in action; hard work as a given; toughness in tolerance; and leaving a legacy-- the program's four pillars. The result thus far has been a group of gifted young women from a much-chided generation learning and understanding the value of appreciation, hard work and leadership as they seek to make their communities a better place.

The next eight months will prepare the team to expand their reach and their comfort zone; to take their lessons and philosophies across the Atlantic and put the four pillars in action in a new community on foreign land. The foreign tour to Spain will serve as a capstone class in the coursework of Boise State women's soccer.

Also during the next eight months, the members of the team will be earning their way for the trip. They have each been tasked with paying a portion of the cost themselves, following the old adage "the more you put into it, the more you get out of it."

To learn more about the trip and the program's foundations, come out to the home matches and meet with members of the team. The season starts Friday (Aug. 19), at home against Idaho State. Kickoff is at 5 p.m. MT, at Boas Soccer Complex (1507 S Oakland Ave, Boise, ID).
