Defending the Trophy!

Congratulations to the Suba Lakers who retained the trophy the 2018 Mbita Open Tournament!

A few of our long-time Suba Lakers were in the area able to play in the tournament. Including Alicent, Lencer, Teresa and Cisca.

We also have some newly recruited girls in primary school. 4 from Kisui, 2 from Nyamanga and 2 from Mbita Primary. 

With combination of the experienced talent and wisdom of our older girls, along with some new energy and young talent, the Suba Lakers were unbeatable.

Barefoot Coaching Night was a great sucess!

On Barefoot Coaching Night at the Dawson Community College (Glendive, Montana) basketball games on Feb 1st, 24 pairs of new shoes were donated and will be distributed to those in need within the Montana/Dakotas Region by Samaritan's Feet International.

Over $750 was donated to the Suba Lakers Football Club. These funds will be used the money to buy ~10 pairs of soccer cleats and pay for an entire year of high school education for one girl.

The coaching staffs for Williston State College and DCC participated in the event by taking off their shoes and coaching barefoot to raise awareness for the millions of people throughout the world who don't have proper footwear. The Lady Bucs and the Bucs both won their games this year, as well as at last year's Barefoot Coaching Game. Perhaps the coaches should go barefoot more often!?

Thank you Glendive, Montana and Dawson Community College for your partnership!
