Ed Foster-Simeon, CEO and president of the U.S. Soccer Foundation, says that the program’s mission goes beyond promoting kids’ physical health. It also helps build self-esteem and strong social skills.“We want to build healthy, vibrant communities using the sport of soccer,” said Foster-Simeon. “Our coaches serve as mentors and help kids make positive choices, both on and off the field. We encourage families to get involved so that their kids live a healthy lifestyle after they leave our program. Through our partnerships with schools and community groups, we are working to improve kids’ well-being in a dynamic way.”
