Delfines del Sur is a small Colombian amateur football team in SUB 20 Category with the purpose of preparing and helping kids to enter the professional football clubs. For many kids in Colombia, to become a professional football player is their biggest dream and, in some cases the only possibility to break out of poverty and change their life. We wanted to support Delfines del Sur team to help these kids achieving their dreams by designing and making for them the so called ‘Petos’ (uniforms during the training).

Most small teams in this category don’t have Petos and the players just take off their shirts during the training to differentiate each other. Although it seems a small thing to have and use Petos, this piece of cloth has a strong effect on the kids. It gives a feeling of seriousity of the trainings and a feeling of importance for the team members. It bears motivation. It can educate kids at early stage to be engaged of their dreams.
