SCHOLARSHIPS, COMMUNITY SUPPORT AND SPECIAL NEEDS PROGRAM
The Soccer 5 Foundation exists to assist children who wish to develop in soccer, play soccer, whilst supporting the community, and the development of a Special Needs Program and enjoying soccer played at Soccer 5 facilities.
Soccer 5 is a proud national soccer partner of NRPA and also a local contributor to parks foundations such as The Parks Foundation of Miami Dade and dedicates time, facilities, people and funds to develop soccer within Parks and introduce children to soccer programs.
Soccer 5 is also proud organizer of Soccer Festivals (see www.soccerfestivals.org) which results in local community tournaments such as The Mayor’s Youth Sports Championship Series ‘Miami Soccer Festival’ www.miamisoccerfestival.org
The Soccer 5 Foundation is a non-profit organization with a simple mission of encouraging more kids to play soccer and more spaces to play soccer. Grant assistance may be available for children and parents who meet the needs of the criteria for support in Soccer. Soccer 5 divests a % of annual profits to the Soccer 5 Foundation with the sole purpose of supporting more soccer, which in turn works in Partnership with national parks within the NRPA and various local parks foundations for example The Parks Foundation of Miami Dade.
SOCCER 5 ACADEMY
Our Soccer 5 Academy operates locally and nationally via owned operated centers and franchisee operated centers. We work closely with US Club Soccer and Parks and many other contributors and foundations to deliver an accredited program for kids and youth ages 3 – 16 who wish to get in to soccer or develop confidence via soccer. All owner operated Academies will become 501c3 2016/17 and we encourage new Soccer 5 Centers around the country to follow the same philosophy as they grow. www.soccer5academy.com
