Soccer and Scouting: Youth ages 7 to 17
The program combines the citizenship, character building, morals, and values in which Scouting has been known for over the past 100 years with the competition and excitement for the sport of soccer. In Soccer and Scouting, youth ages 7 to 17 learn the life-long values taught in the traditional Scouting program, and at the same time, are taught soccer skills.
Soccer and Scouting has had tremendous success in the Hispanic community of Minnesota. In West Saint Paul, Soccer and Scouting led not just to the creation of the largest volunteer-led youth soccer league of Saint Paul...The program also served to create a community focus that brings together parents, families, volunteers, and religious and community leaders to focus on youth development.
Soccer and Scouting is a rewarding program, providing youth with a fun, safe, and character building experience and strengthening bonds among family members, neighbors and community leaders.
