In the details...
"A little girl had just started Soccer for Success and was having a hard time. She had been held back a grade, bullied, was homeless, rough family conditions... in short, she had a lot that she was up against. She mentioned to a social worker that she had wanted to run away from home and never come back, but she could not. Why? Because she did not want to miss soccer practice. Participating in practice made everything else worth it for her. She was allowed to come to soccer, with a supervisor watching from a distance, because they didn't want her to miss out on what she called, "the best part of her life." By the end of the season she was performing her talent show skit in front of the team before practice, she was helping "assistant coach", and she had 15 new friends. This success will not show up in an infographic or a percentile... but Soccer for Success truly made a difference in this girl's life." Site Coordinator at McGlone Elementary
