PHILADELPHIA COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT THROUGH SOCCER

  • 17 people are interested
Coach with Us!
We are looking for coaches for our after school soccer programs at schools and recreation centers, for our Saturday introductory soccer program and for our travel teams.

The Kensington Soccer Club offers soccer to low-income children, ages 3 to 19, in Philadelphia, mainly in the Kensington community.

We operate in a variety of settings

In the fall, for children ages 6 to 14, we offer an outdoor recreational program two evenings a week and Saturday morning or early afternoon at Third and Dauphin Streets in Philadelphia.

Also in the fall, we will have Saturday-only introductory soccer for children aged 3 to 5 at Third and Dauphin Streets in Philadelphia, starting in early April.

Also in the Fall, we have several competitive teams, playing in a Philadelphia Parks and Recreation League and other teams playing in a Bucks County Recreational league.

We bring soccer to local after school programs and recreation centers in the Kensington area, typically with two sessions at the schools and rec centers during the week and a Saturday session at Third and Dauphin.

We are also looking for volunteer accounting and volunteer administrative help.

Experience in playing and knowledge of soccer a big plus. Coaching experience and / or experience working with children a big plus. Commitment to providing a caring and supportive environment for children a very big plus. Ability to speak languages other than English, especially Spanish, a plus.

We are looking for people who are willing to make a commitment to work with a team for at least one 9 to 10-week season, helping the children grow and develop in both soccer skills and personal development - learning teamwork and having healthy interactions with other children.

We also have a SAVE - Soccer Athletes Value Education - Table on weekends, with educational enrichment and reading to children who participate in our program.

NOTE: Please be aware: We awaiting final word from the city and the Parks and Recreation League about whether we will be able to have soccer as usual and we are developing a Return to Play policy to prepare for resuming in- person soccer. But we are going ahead in registering participants and forming teams so we can be prepared to play, when that becomes safe for our players, their families, and our coaches.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to unite and advance Philadelphia communities with high quality soccer and youth development programs open to all, regardless of ability to pay. We provide nurturing settings for children to exercise, play, and learn teamwork and social skills, while helping families access opportunities in sports, academics, social services, and employment.

Description

We are a non-traditional soccer organization, combining aspects of traditional soccer clubs with broad-based community outreach programs. We introduce soccer to kids and families who are new to the sport, with teaching techniques that encourage problem-solving, behavior management, and individual responsibility. We use our team-based competitive programs to forge close relationships with players and families, in order to promote youth and community advancement.
We began in 2009 as Kensington Soccer Club, with recreational youth programs. In 2014, we incorporated as an independent 501c3 non-profit: Philadelphia Community Empowerment Through Soccer.
We continue to use the Kensington Soccer Club name, reflecting our base in the in the zip code of Philadelphia with the highest rate of poverty in the city.
We put special emphasis on inclusion; many of the participating families are recent immigrants. Many of our coaches speak Spanish; we work hard to accommodate families whose first language is not English.
