We are training a team for the International Special Olympics event which will be held in Greece this summer. It is inspiring how far these kids have come from the first days we had a Special Olympics Football training. This practice was at a beautiful field in Belmopan, Belize's capital city. We will practice together once a month until the team of 8 children is selected. Christen, a Peace Corps worker and Elodia, a teacher in our program, do most of the day to day coaching. My role? (as little as possible...smile... ) . I try to be an encouraging fan, and drive them to the practice.
