AUBURNDALE, FL (March 28, 2022)- Over the weekend Florida Youth Soccer Association (FYSA) teamed up with U.S. Soccer and Florida Rush to run a free Coach for Community (C4C) event at the National Training Center in Clermont, Fl. This C4C event is one of several community engagement initiatives that are part of U.S. Soccer’s “One Nation” social responsibility platform, which seeks to drive positive impact in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
U.S. Soccer's mission is to make soccer, in all its forms, the preeminent sport in the United States and to continue the development of soccer at all recreational and competitive levels.
In the United States, many youth coaches do not have access to adequate training. U.S. Soccer has established the Coach for Community program to serve not only as an introduction to teaching the game but also to improve sporting experiences within communities, particularly in underserved areas that may lack access and training for coaches, players, and volunteers.
