ELLA Sports Foundation, a 501(c) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower and support young Latinas to become leaders of tomorrow through sports and academic excellence, has donated funds and sports equipment to the girls’ soccer team at Unity Reed High School in Manassas. The funds will enable the team to rent an indoor sportsplex they can use to practice during the winter months. The team starts practice at the sportsplex on March 1.

“We are delighted to provide sports equipment and funding to Unity Reed High School’s brand-new girls’ soccer team that will allow them to practice indoors during the winter months,” says Patty Godoy, co-founder of ELLA Sports Foundation. “My daughter Lilly and I co-founded the organization to provide young Latinas with the mentorship and support they need as they embark on their athletic, academic, and professional journeys. We are proud to support the Unity Reed High School girls’ soccer team and wish them a successful season.”

“As a professional soccer player, it’s gratifying to be part of an organization that empowers young girls to achieve excellence through sports,” says Yaneisy Rodriguez, ELLA’s Soccer Ambassador. “I know this donation will make a difference for United Reed High School girls’ soccer team.”

“Thank you, ELLA Sports Foundation, for your generous donation to our girls’ soccer team,” says Coach Jessica Perdue. “A very large majority of the team has never before played soccer or any sport in an organized setting. We are excited to offer them this opportunity. Sports plays such an essential role in building self-confidence and a hard work ethic. The team is going into this season as underdogs, but they are putting in the hard work and charging forward regardless. That alone is a win in my book. We could not do it without the support of the school and programs like the ELLA Sports Foundation.”
