About

Soccer for Success is an innovative youth development program that uses soccer as a tool to combat childhood obesity and promote healthy lifestyles for children in under-resourced urban communities. The program operates for 90 minutes after-school, three days a week, at eleven low-income elementary schools across South King County. Participants receive free, quality soccer programming that includes lessons on nutrition and the importance of being active. Soccer for Success is committed to addressing the holistic needs of under-served children and using sport for social change. If you like soccer, are passionate about promoting healthy lifestyles, and enjoy building meaningful relationships, then this program is a great fit for you! With over 500 kids in the program in 3 school districts (Highline, Kent, and Auburn), we are always looking for dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to help coach, mentor, and put on events throughout the seasons. Soccer for Success is not your ordinary soccer program; it challenges players to become much more than just soccer stars. It gives them the tools to make healthy food choices, promotes an active lifestyle, and build confidence in themselves.
