In 2014, The Courage F.U.N. Project
was officially established as the Community Outreach arm of Prince William Soccer. It's mission is to help provide the resources necessary to help those in the community, who need it most, the ability to participate in organized soccer. It supports three programs through Prince William Soccer along with other initiatives.
1. Soccer For Success
-The club is the only youth soccer organization in the country that is a part of the US Soccer Foundation's Soccer for Success after school program. The Soccer for Success program targets tier 1 or at risks schools to teach 3rd and 4th graders about Soccer, Health, and Nutrition. Completely free to the participants and their schools, PWSI sends coaches in 3 days a week over the course of 12 week season in Fall and Spring to educate the individuals on these health and nutrition while teaching them the great game of soccer. We are currently in two elementary schools and hope to continue to grow the program since it's inception in 2012.
(“The Outreach Program”) is the official United States Youth Soccer (USYS) program offered in affiliation with Prince William Soccer, Inc. to any child between the ages 41/2 to 18 with physical and/or mental disabilities. This program is designed to get these young athletes off the sidelines and onto the playing field. The mission of this program is geared toward having FUN, socializing with friends, exercising, and, if our children will cooperate a little, learning about soccer. The program is not going to make professional soccer players out of them. Instead, these kids will work on coordination, flexibility, object recognition and much more in a fun and energetic atmosphere. We hope the kids take away from this program a sense of accomplishment in learning something new or expanding upon their abilities.
3. CFA (Courage Financial Assistance) Program
- Every year we provide over $50,000 in financial assistance to families in the community in order for their children to have the opportunity to participate in an organized soccer league. Our goal is to ensure that every kid has the opportunity to play in our program regardless of ability level or ability to pay. This program is a very important part of our Courage FUN Project.
