Hola, my name is Domingo Alcala and I am currently the Program Coordinator for Central Washington University’s Game On! Program. Some of my responsibilities include the development, implementation, coordination, facilitation and delivery of the CWU Game On! soccer curriculum as required by the Real Madrid Foundation. Growing up I attended and graduated from Toppenish School District. I also grew up playing football (soccer) since the age of 4 years old. I was the first in my family to graduate from a four-year university and went on to earn a Masters degree in Exercise and Sports Science from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. My personal and educational experiences have brought me back home and through Game On! I am able instill in our youth that higher education is attainable and teach them leadership skills and core values.
