Play Soccer is an international non-profit that provides soccer programs for youth. Founded in 1999, Play Soccer started its newest network, and the only one outside of Africa, in the United States in January of 2011. This start-up program has locations in both the Ohio/Appalachia and Los Angeles areas.
We have formed a partnership program with the Santa Monica Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Foundation in California, which is a designated FIFA Medical Center of Excellence. The partnership plans to develop a pilot program in an underserved Los Angeles area, expand to other parts of the US, and to support existing programs in Africa. The Foundation will help PSNI improve, revise and develop its curriculum and activities to include better sport and exercise physiology and science, motor and cognitive development activities, and the implementation of new community health and wellness outreach activities.
