Reaching out to Children Through Soccer



This summer, some 350 kids from two Clearwater groups, the Greenwood Community Center and the Life Force Cultural Arts Academy have been experiencing the fun of soccer daily.  Galactics Clearwater International Football Club offered to provide free summer soccer sessions for the Community Center and Life Force Academy with the purpose of introducing the predominantly African-American kids to soccer and helping to keep them entertained and active during the summer break.

The African-American community is strongly rooted in American football and basketball and has yet to discover the attraction and opportunities of the fastest-growing sport in the US—soccer—played by millions, loved by billions and the number one sport in the world.
