South End Soccer



Youth Soccer in the Heart of Boston 

Welcome to south end soccer!

Since founding in 2008, South End Soccer has been committed to giving urban youth the opportunity to play the world’s most popular sport regardless of prior experience or economic means. We offer recreational and competitive play for ages 5-18. We are a member of the Massachusetts Youth Soccer (MYSA), following their philosophy of coach training, instruction and play.  We provide fun, age appropriate programs for your child that fosters comfort with the ball and a sense of teamwork. We use soccer as a tool to connect our diverse community, and overcome the obstacles that hinder urban youth and underserved communities from getting on the field and engendering a love of the game. 

"We love South End Soccer. This program brings together people from all different backgrounds. The program's diversity and inclusion is amazing. Plus its a free program!"
