The Kensington Soccer Club offers soccer at a low or no cost to low-income children - girls and boys - ages 3 to 19, in Philadelphia, mainly in the Kensington community.
This Fall (September-November), KSC is offering recreational and travel outdoor soccer programs as well as clinics at a number of public schools throughout North Philadelphia. For our rec and travel programs, coaches should be available 1-2 weeknights between 5-8pm (practices last 1.5 hours on average) and 1 weekend day for games (times and days vary depending on program).
In addition to our home base of Casiano Field, we plan to offer shorter, 1-2 day per week community clinics at community sites throughout Kensington. There are many ways to be a volunteer coach at KSC!
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.
Coaches should be committed to helping children grow and develop in both soccer skills and personal development - learning teamwork and having healthy interactions with other children.

About PHILADELPHIA COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT THROUGH SOCCER
2316 EMERALD ST, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19125, US
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.
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.
