Score That Goal

Help me give my students a full-size soccer goal. In order to maximize practice time, another goal would be transformative to the program.

My Students

My soccer players are a group of dedicated and passionate student-athletes. They are dedicated to building their individual skills, as well as building our team as a notable school program.

They put in work year-round, developing their individual skill, team chemistry, and mentality.

Our community is tucked within an urban center of the greater Phoenix area. As a primarily Hispanic and Latino community, soccer is at the heart of their culture. The boys in our program center their worlds around soccer, and for many, it is the vehicle to get financial support for college.

It is an honor to be able to work with such a hard-working and talented team of players. It is my goal to be able to be a shaping force to help them become not only quality athletes but quality people.

My Project

High school sports programs are a vital part of student development and engagement. For many of our players, the soccer program provides a structure that allows them to not only succeed on the field but also succeed in the classroom.

High school sports programs provide students with principles of dedication and discipline which serve them far beyond the field.

However, in order to grow this program and provide high-quality training sessions, high-quality training materials are necessary.

Currently, we have one full-size goal between our three levels, including over 60 players. Another goal would eliminate the current limitations of our training sessions, allowing a higher level of training to occur. Our players are talented and dedicated to their development; your donation would aid in their individual success and aid the development of the program overall.
