One of the most profound issues today in relation to sports is the struggle for families to be able to afford opportunities to participate in sports. Due to this growing trend, we came up with the UKSD Kidz Play 4 Free Project.
Each year we offer numerous free of charge soccer leagues and clinics to all children, both locally and internationally, regardless of their race, socio-economic background, or abilities. We are able to provide a safe place for children to not just play soccer, but to truly bring the community together through the game.
Furthermore, these programs are organized and implemented by qualified coaches, educators, and trained peer leaders. It is our mission to provide instruction for the whole child. Soccer is merely a piece of each program, as we also work to raise awareness of social issues such as homelessness, hunger, and substance abuse as well.
Peer to Peer Involvement
Providing free of charge soccer opportunities to young people is not the only thing that the KP4FP offers.
One of the main objectives of the program is to allow high school aged participants to become directly involved within their very own communities. They are able to help their younger peers better understand the importance of helping others, while also educating them about social issues, such as, homelessness, hunger, and substance abuse.
Through peer to peer leadership, it is our goal to educate young people about different cultures and societies throughout the world in order to bridge gaps, both locally and globally, regardless of religious beliefs, race, or socioeconomic backgrounds so that the next generation can help create a stronger future for all.
