Bayamón, PR (October 28, 2011) - The Puerto Rico Islanders, in partnership with Bayamon FC and the city of Bayamon, visited the Braulio Dueño Colón School today as part of the Soccer 101 program. The Soccer 101 program was established as a program to teach fundamental soccer skills and spread the development of soccer in schools across the Island.
"It's a great thing for the community for the children to have the experience of developing soccer skills, especially now that schools have their own soccer teams. Soccer is growing constantly in the community. You use to see little bit, but now it's way more popular," said Javier Belilla, Physical Education Teacher of Braulio Dueño Colón School.
The Puerto Rico Islanders' front office as well as the Bayamon FC coaching staff were teaching the kids the fundamentals of soccer. The students participated in basic passing drills, kicking drills, and exercise designed help teach them how to work as a team. Soccer 101 will take place for the rest of the year in various schools across the Island.
