In the picturesque community of Escamequita, a small town in Nicaragua, a passionate and dedicated individual is making a significant impact on the lives of local children through soccer.
Alvaro Mora, a former second-division national soccer player and architect by profession, started the Nextwave Soccer Camp almost two years ago. What began as private training sessions for a few foreign kids has now blossomed into a thriving community-driven initiative that welcomes children from all backgrounds. This success wouldn't have been possible without the crucial support of a key benefactor, Nadim Bonni. Notably, Nadim's children were the first to participate in the camp, and their involvement marked the beginning of this impactful initiative. His unwavering support and belief in Alvaro's vision have significantly contributed to the camp's growth and success.
The Nextwave Soccer Camp was born out of Alvaro's love for soccer and his desire to share his expertise with the youth in his community. Initially, he started by offering private training sessions for foreign children, however, as local kids started showing interest and attending the sessions, Alvaro decided to expand the program to include all children.
Alvaro's aspirations for the Nextwave Soccer Camp don't end here. He dreams of creating age-specific categories for children under 10 and under 12 years old. By doing so, he aims to provide tailored coaching and foster talent development from a young age. The camp is open to all children who wish to experience the joy of playing soccer and learn important life values through teamwork and sportsmanship.
As an architect with a busy schedule, Alvaro faces challenges in finding time for training the children. However, his passion for soccer and love for the community keep him going. Despite fatigue and heavy workloads, Alvaro dedicates his afternoons to train the children from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm. His commitment and genuine care for the kids have earned him their love and respect.
Sharing the Vision: Alvaro's ultimate goal is to reach out to as many children in the community as possible and ensure that no child misses out on the opportunity to participate in this enriching experience. Through the camp, Alvaro strives to instill not only soccer skills but also essential values like teamwork, discipline, and sportsmanship.
