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; we are now serving 2,500 kids per season throughout the Denver Metro area and will expand the program to serve 4,000 children by spring 2016.
