Our club believes in the power of soccer to change the lives of youth.  The scope of work and distinct combination of community programming we offer to underserved youth is a leading model for clubs nationwide.    The core of programming is Soccer for Success, the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s free afterschool program that uses soccer as a tool to promote healthy lifestyles in urban underserved communities.  Through a multi-year grant from the Alfred Zarlengo estate, we complement Soccer for Success with soccer clinics, leagues, and scholarship opportunities specifically designed for underserved Latino youth, a key way to integrate outreach work with broader Rapids Youth Soccer coaching and player development programming.  Effectively combining Soccer for Success and Zarlengo programming makes our outreach work unique, robust, and impactful.  We worked with over 3,000 kids last year and plan on expanding our reach in 2016.
