Soccer for Success

Soccer for Success is the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s free afterschool program that uses soccer as a tool to promote healthy and active lifestyles in urban communities.

4 Components of Soccer for Success:

  • Physical Activity: Children participate in 90 minute sessions three days a week.
  • Mentorship: Each site is staffed by caring coaches who serve as mentors that are invested in the successful development of each child.
  • Nutrition: Mentors deliver educational activities where participants are taught the basics of nutrition, the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices, and the importance of maintaining healthy habits.
  • Family Engagement: Soccer for Success strives to turn parents and family members into advocates who reinforce the program’s teachings by applying them in their homes.
