Soccer clinics are an essential part of our work in Africa, providing us a platform to educate children about life through sport, using the most popular sport in the world. The primary focus of our clinics is to provide the children with the tools to be successful in school and in their communities. We achieve this by relating soccer to real life situations, through exercises and drills in which we underline the importance of good decision making, developing individual skills and working together as a team. In an effort to create incentives to do well in school, we require students have a “C” average or above to attend our clinics. We also provide our participants with school supplies, including English and Math notebooks, rulers, pens and pencils to help ease the burden of school expenses on the children and their families. The average cost of a soccer clinic for 40 children is $200. In addition, we like to award scholarships for a semester’s tuition to top clinic participants, which averages $30 per scholarship over the $200 cost of the clinic itself.
