On Sunday, November 3rd DAIS students born between 2008-2013 were invited to participate in the Friendship Soccer Cup hosted by Inter Dalian Soccer Club. DAIS soccer players met three Inter Dalian Club teams and the invited team. The tournament was broken up into two divisions, and every player took part in at least two games.

The day started with a warm-up soccer match. Kids and adults teamed up on Inter Dalian soccer field to enjoy the play, the weather, and the scenery. Later it came the time for the championship. The Head Coach Tiago Jose dos Ries and other professional European and Chinese coaches from Inter Dalian organization were there to arrange teams properly, to build on kids’ skills and teamwork understanding of the game.

All kids tried hard to show their good sportsmanship and to win the game, but the younger DAIS players were the best that day. They won first place in their division and captured gold. All other players got their medals as well and went home with smiling faces. It was a great chance for all students to practice their soccer skills, to spend time outdoors, and to forge new friendships.
