Love soccer? Want to share the joy of the game with underserved kids in central Brooklyn? Join us for this exciting opportuntiy to create a brand new league for youth who need it in Crown Heights!
Yes, you can empower youth and their families to get active in a neighborhood without many options. Help us build the first-ever youth Crown Heights Soccer League!
Seeking anyone who can play soccer or support the program from July through December. Saturdays and Sundays, and possibly Thursday evenings. We are thinking to do a few sessions in JULY if volunteers step up.
Have a few spare hours on the weekend or even Thursday eves? Have fun, play ball, make a difference. Yes, high school students are welcome and we give community service credits.
Our program started in 2009 just to get kids active. Now, we want to build a league. Kids love it, but don't know the game. Help us create teams!
