Soccer for Success is the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s free soccer-based afterschool program that uses soccer as a tool to address children’s health issues and juvenile delinquency, while promoting healthy lifestyles in urban underserved communities.
What started as a small program serving 2,000 children in three cities, has grown to over 55,000 children in over 30 cities today. Combining physical activity, nutrition education, mentorship, and family engagement, Soccer for Success has transformed underserved communities nationwide.
The Rapids Youth Club implements one of the largest Soccer for Success programs in the country, serving 4,000 youth each year in the Denver metro area. Our staff works closely with the US Soccer Foundation as we drive program and curriculum innovation to best serve the Denver community.
