Building Futures in OKC
We’re helping Oklahoma City Public Schools transform school playgrounds into 10 Safe Places to Play mini-pitches. These new spaces will host after-school soccer programming and be open for free play. Together with our partners, we’re making soccer everyone’s game.
Creating Safe Places to Play
Looking to enhance your soccer play space? Safe Places to Play grants help fund the cost of enhancements such as lighting, irrigation, and Sport Court. Applications for the fall grant cycle will be accepted starting September 3rd. The Foundation also accepts applications for synthetic turf funding on a rolling basis.
The Power of Soccer
The FIFA Women’s World Cup represents more than just another trophy for the U.S. Women’s National Team. In a new blog, U.S. Soccer Foundation Associate VP of Programs Sarah Pickens delves deeper into what the win means for the future of soccer and for young people across the country.
An All-Star Community
At this year’s MLS All-Star Community Day, we unveiled two new Safe Places to Play mini-pitches with Target, MLS WORKS, and Osceola Schools at Neptune Middle School. These mini-pitches are two of 100 that we’re building with Target by 2020.
