SSNYC Continues League Play

After falling last week 7-5 in a spirited game, Street Soccer New York City looks to rebound this Friday night. The game will take place at Chelsea Piers at 9pm vs Inter NY. Every game SSNYC has shown that they are not only improving their soccer skills but showing true fair play throughout. Last week 12 players from SSNYC came to play at the game, including 6 who are no longer living in the shelter. It has been a great transitional season for many of our players and we ask that you come out and continue supporting us as we achieve our goals on and off of the field!

SS Dallas Holds First Practice

The Street Soccer Dallas team had a wonderful first practice. The players had very little (if any) soccer experience which, according to their coach Matt Valentine, will allow them to see greater progress and thus a more rewarding experience. The enthusiasm and willingness/desire to learn was infectious. In the locker room the coaches overheard the players saying that they really needed this - something fun to do. One of the players told one of the coaches that it was the most fun he had had in years.

This is just the start to another great Street Soccer USA program…. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!
