Our mission is to build life-changing community based sports programs that reach the least served communities across the United States and beyond.
Street Soccer USA’s programs provide youth ages 6-18, and young adults ages 18-30, with teamwork and life skills lessons through soccer in its community based clubs, after school programs, and in partnership with schools and other social service providers.
Street Soccer USA offers a soccer-based life skills program that teaches 8 progressive life and job readiness skills with age appropriate content. Our 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) progress two skills at time from fundamental, to individual, to team, to strategic lessons that translate the learnings of sports to real life. The goal of the curriculum is personal empowerment by teaching our participants to be problem solvers in their individual lives and in their community.
