Join me in making a difference in the lives of underprivileged youth (K-8th Graders) in Niagara Falls this summer as a Soccer Coach / Mentor.  The ' Coach' mention may scare you away, but don't let that be an obstacle...the 'Soccer for Success' Program Staff will train you.

You have the Mentor skills built in, having experienced much more in life than the Kindergarten - 8th Graders you'll be working with; all you'll need to learn are fundamental soccer skills in order to teach the kids, and the basic rules of soccer so the kids know what they can and cannot do while playing soccer.  You already know that soccer involves kicking the soccer ball, passing it to teammates with your feet, and ultimately trying to kick the ball in the opponents net (goal) without using your hands!  Soccer is a pretty simple and straight-forward sport and kids pick up on the rules very quickly.  The 'Soccer for Success' Staff will teach you what you need to know about soccer in order to be a successful Coach and, as I said earlier, you already have the Experience, Knowledge & Wisdom to be an example and Mentor to kids in a way that will impact their little lives FOREVER!  The 'Soccer for Success' Program will also educate the kids regarding Nutrition as well.  The program provides a Total Wellness approach for our Youth!
