Scouting Through Soccer and Learning For Life Soccer/Basketball are exciting athletics based programs that provide training and character development through the prism of sports.
Youth participate in seasonal programs offering games, practices, and community outreach opportunities. Each season is based on a flexible curriculum that is designed to teach youth the importance of engaging with their communities, while promoting physical fitness, sportsmanship, and creativity. As youth progress throughout the season they will be provided opportunities for leadership and advancement by the dedicated mentoring of coaches and volunteers.
Soccer has often been described as “the world’s most popular sport” attracting the interests and passions of people from diverse cultural backgrounds; uniting them in the spirit of competition. Game play challenges youth to make quick decisions, discipline their bodies and minds, and adapt creatively to problems and obstacles. For these reasons and many more, soccer is an ideal vehicle to help youth explore their communities and learn important life skills.
