Soccer Across America
What is Soccer Across America?
Soccer Across America (formerly Soccer Start) is designed to introduce the sport of soccer to children living in communities not yet served by existing clubs and leagues. Focused on making soccer available to lower-income children in underserved communities, Soccer Across America provides soccer training and administrative guidance to players and organizations that might not be exposed to the sport.

- Increase self esteem of youngsters through participation in an organized and supportive program of team activities.
