September was all about Soccer at Detroit PAL! Soccer gives PAL kids, ages 4-19, a great chance to get active, make friends, and learn about a fun sport! From our Little Kickers program for 4-6 year old participants to learn the basics, to our school teams of all ages, soccer is a great PAL program!
We kicked off fall seasons in our Recreational Soccer League, GOAL Detroit Soccer League (in partnership with the Mayor’s Office), and the U.S. Soccer Foundation’s Soccer for Success program. There are now more than a thousand young boys and girls getting active and having fun playing soccer all over Detroit!
Soccer for Success is the free soccer-based after-school program developed by the U.S. Soccer Foundation (USSF) that uses soccer as a tool to combat childhood obesity and promote healthy lifestyles for children. Detroit has partnered with the USSF since 2011 serving more than 6,000 participants in 5 years. The Soccer for Success Program at Detroit PAL is for girls and boys in elementary and middle schools.
In partnership with the Detroit Mayor’s Office, The Goal Detroit Soccer League is an elementary school soccer program coordinated through Detroit PAL to provide children the resources to build character, fitness and exercise, enjoy the outdoors, learn teamwork and to have fun.
We hope everyone is enjoying the start to their fall soccer seasons! Learn more about our soccer programs here.
