Brazil 2013

In advance of the 2014 World Cup, a team of 4 Super Soccer Stars coaches traveled to rural Bahia in Brazil at the end of November, 2013. In collaboration with Round Star Foundation, our coaching team worked with a group of at-risk youth to hone soccer skills and teach the students the basic coaching techniques through our T.A.L.E.N.T. program. In addition, we introduced our unique Building Soccer Bridges platform to dozens of local school physical education teachers and provided a donation of soccer equipment for the local school network. The positive feedback we received from our program in Bahia was tremendous, and we are looking forward to continuing this work around the globe! We are committed to using soccer as the vehicle to build leadership skills, enhance self-confidence, and empower youth to make positive contributions to their communities.

Making the world a better place through the beautiful game

About the Program:

Building Soccer Bridges uses the beautiful game as a tool to empower youth, support their physical and personal growth and positively engage them in their education. The program provides training for youth on the basics of soccer coaching, preparing them to become mentors for younger children in their community. In addition, groups of teachers are provided with an instructional foundation, philosophy and practical skills to enhance their school based soccer programs and to create a more structured and positive soccer education experience for children and youth.

Super Soccer Stars T.A.L.E.N.T. Program promotes Teaching, Athletes, Leadership, Excellence, Nutrition and Teamwork. We implement this curriculum using these themes to encourage positive behaviors including academic achievement, increased self-esteem, enhanced social interaction, cultural awareness and building integrity on and off the field.
