This project strives for innovative instruction and enhanced educational opportunities. Our primary asset is cultural relevance. The global community refers to soccer as "the beautiful game", yet competitive soccer is not offered at the middle school level. Our target demographic views soccer as an incentive, therefore creating more school buy-in among students who may feel marginalized in an English dominant environment. Through the mechanism of a soccer program, students are encouraged by club sponsors to seek placement in enhanced coursework, maintain consistency in attendance, avoid discipline referrals (which subsequently leads to absence from quality instructional time) and to seek higher education and/or career tracks presented to them by advocates and representatives of these institutions.
