Mission Statement

Our mission is to build life-changing community based sports programs that reach the least served communities across the United States and beyond. Our goal is to provide an alternative to the pay-to-play model of youth sports with a focus on social impact across the United States and beyond. Our theory of change is that, by creating safe places to play and supplying trained, caring coaches, social service coordinators, our curriculum, and basic equipment, Street Soccer USA improves the personal capacity of our participants to achieve bigger goals in terms of education and employment.

Description

Street Soccer introduces and builds the grassroots capacity of soccer in urban areas with goal of transferring life skills and creating a social safety net in the community for our participants. Our methodology of soccer instruction is informed by years of research and development in the field by others and informed by our own experience and expertise. Our 8 Street Soccer Skills (Show Up, Play with Heart, Look Up, Take the Space, Build Your Triangle,Praise Great Play, Play the Plan, Adjust the Plan) provide a problem solving framework that our participants can apply to every situation that life confronts them with.
