Soccer for Success
is the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s free after school program that uses soccer as a tool to address children’s health issues and juvenile delinquency, while promoting healthy lifestyles in urban under-served communities.
The Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club began running Soccer for Success
in fall 2012 with 700 children and is now serving 1,500 children throughout the Denver Metro Area. The Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club plans to expand the program to serve 4,000 children by spring 2016.
