I cannot explain in words how happy I am to have been given this opportunity to be in Cebu, and more importantly, to spend more time with the kids I coach. I learned more about each one of them, in the same way they got to know more about me, which we only oftentimes have during our sessions. This made me feel closer to them.
It was also heartwarming to watch them enjoy their games, especially with the teams from different parts of the country. As their coach, I was so proud to see them play on the field as a team. Every time they come to me, I felt their trust and confidence in me – things that made me believe more in myself.
It was overall a wonderful experience, together with the kids, fellow coaches, and staff, and I am thankful to F4L for taking me in as a coach and giving me this rare opportunity to join this year’s Thirsty Football Cup.
