What is Soccer for Success?

Soccer for Success is an after-school program, offered free to participants, that is proven to help kids establish healthy habits and develop critical life skills through trained coach-mentors and family engagement.


Partnering with community-based organizations, like the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, the U.S. Soccer Foundation operates Soccer for Success sites across the U.S. – providing thousands of children in grades K-8 with free after-school programming. Houston Soccer for Success is currently serving around 1,500 youth throughout 20 sites (schools and parks) in the Houston Area.
