Play for Keeps was divinely inspired. The idea for the program was put into the hearts of several individuals, and the necessary building blocks quickly fell into place.
IMPROVING THE LIVES OF AT-RISK KIDS
THROUGH ROLE MODELS
Dedicated coaches and youth mentors act as emotional and spiritual role models, offering supportive counseling and teaching life skills
Fully funded soccer club scholarships, transportation to practice and games, outings to professional games, training as coaches and referees, and college scouting
High academic standards, help with homework, and assistance with athletic and academic scholarships. We engage at-risk kids as young as first grade -- we know academic performance as early as third grade can predict their future
Healthy, nutritious "fuel" for the kids before practice and games
