The Urban Soccer Diploma focuses on how coaches can use soccer as a vehicle for social change in communities where practices may be part of an after-school program or run on a non-traditional player space. This course will highlight community assets that help lift-up communities that may have high incidence of trauma, low income populations, and areas where athletes may fall victim to the pay to play model that plagues youth sports. Learn, discuss, and strategize how to create community change through soccer.
Course Time: Saturday, March 21 from 10:00am-3:00pm. All other specific questions about this course should be directed to the site coordinator, Greg Mauch, who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 260-625-3006.
