Support Tane to go to train and experience football and futsal in Barcelona (Spain)

Palmerston North, Manawatu-Wanganui

Hi, my name is Tane, and I am currently 10 years old. I started to play football when I was 3yo and fell in love with the game since then. When I was 6yo I told my mum and dad that I want to be a professional football player and they are helping me to reach my GOAL. Playing football makes me happy, always with a smile on my face when I have the ball. I play in a team two grades above my age in Palmerston North and attend a Football and Futsal Academy.

I know I must work hard in training to improve every day. My coach Juliano Schmeling (Marist Football Director) has seen my efforts and attitude and organised a tour in May 2023 for four weeks to play football and futsal in Barcelona where I can learn from high-quality coaches and players. The opportunity to travel to Spain to have this football experience is my first big step to accomplishing my GOAL!

I am raising funds for the trip to help my parents with its costs.

I thank you for taking the time to read this and any donations that will help to raise money to go to Barcelona next year would be greatly appreciated.

Here is an article on about my trip to Barcelona

Hello Everyone

From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you again for your donations and support.

Two weeks have passed since Tane embarked on his journey to build his dream. And today after he has finished his training; he asked his dad to take him a photo with a poster we made with the names of all of you who contributed to making this trip possible. It is his way to say: "You are here as well with me"

Thank you again and forever for your support and help!!
