Financial Support / Sponsorship 

Enable our youth to get on the field an play without the barriers of cost.

South End Soccer is committed to breaking down barriers and finding ways to get urban youth on the field playing the world’s most popular sport:

  • We provide FREE programing and raise all funding needed to support program expenses including uniform kits, equipment and coach training;​ 
  • We bring together the support and sponsorship of parents, community members, local organizations and businesses including Boston Police Athletic League, Boston Center for Youth and Families, Boston Parks and Recreation, Roxbury YMCA, Northeastern University, Boston SCORES, Boston Medical, Emerson College, New England RUSH, US Soccer Foundation; and,
  • We are a volunteer-based, non-profit organization and as a member of Mass Youth Soccer (MYSA) and follow their philosophy of play.

Imagine, regardless of socio-economics, zip code or background, any Boston youth has this opportunity to just be like every other child in America, on the field, playing and making life long memories. That is our focus and drive, and we are have proved it can be done. Since launching in 2008, we have grown to:

  • Serve 1,200 urban youth annually (we started with only 40) through FREErecreational, developmental and competitive programs;
  • Provide urban youth from ages 5-18 the opportunity to play at all levels from exposure to development to travel and more competitive;
  • Break down barriers by playing locally on fields in the heart of the city which are easily accessible to neighborhood families (fields include Rotch, Madison Park, Hurley and Roxbury YMCA) and provide transportation for our travel and competitive teams as needed;
  • Empower confidence and pride in urban youth by building teams with volunteer coaches who are community members and parents, and mentor players by using soccer to teach life skills like good sportsmanship, respect for fellow participants, team building and conflict resolution;
  • Bring together families from diverse backgrounds in a safe and supportive environment – thus exposing youth and adults to varied cultures and creating the avenue for neighbors to get to know each and build community; and,
  • Provide the highest level of coach and player development through trainings and outreach.

Join the Team - Support Our Youth and community

South End Soccer’s mission is to provide high-quality soccer programming to children ages 5-18 in South End, Roxbury, Chinatown, and adjacent neighborhoods of Boston regardless of players’ previous experience or economic means. And, this is only possible with lots of helping hands!
