Women's Soccer Team South Africa Trip

Cabrini Women’s Soccer is excited to head out on our fourth trip abroad to scenic Cape Town, South Africa. During their week long adventure the Cavaliers will take on several area clubs and universities, which serve as developmental opportunities for the Cabrini athletes. As a function of their competitive on the field experience Cabrini will also compete against a township team.  Still some of the poorest areas, connecting with the townships through sports provides an opportunity to bridge a divide created by the harsh legacy of apartheid.  Mandela once stated, “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.”

While the ladies will experience and connect with the South African people on the field, they will be equally challenged to grow and learn off the field.  The team will experience Cape Town highlights such as further history of Apartheid via journeys to Nelson Mandela’s prison camp on Robben Island, dive with great white sharks, zipline and sand surf. The Cavaliers will spend two half day sessions working with disadvantaged children via Zag’s partnership with Save Volunteering.  Such experiences provide a way to inspire athletes around ideals of international service, while also connecting students to local people in meaningful and authentic ways.”
