Get Involved and Celebrate Youth Soccer in September!
 
During Youth Soccer Month, wear your soccer jersey to school, talk to your friends about soccer, and even invite them to go out to play during their free time. Remember that there are many ways you can contribute in the promotion of soccer and the development of players in the community, emphasizing your efforts on the four pillars of Youth Soccer Month… FITNESS, FUN, FAMILY and FRIENDSHIP.

Interest in the sport of soccer is at its highest level ever, with more than 19 million children ages five – 19, from Portland, ME to Portland, OR, on city streets and in suburban fields, playing the game.  More children are participating in organized soccer than any other sport.  For these children, soccer is more than a pastime, it is a passion.

Recognizing the impact and importance the sport of soccer plays in the day-to-day lives of America’s families, US Youth Soccer, with 3.2 million members, the nation’s largest youth sports association, is spearheading the third annual Youth Soccer Month - Celebrating Soccer in America, this September.  Why is soccer so popular?  Because it offers children, both girls and boys the opportunity to participate in a healthy lifestyle, be physically active and develop social skills while making new friends.
