Inner City Initiative
The goal of the SFC Inner City Initiative is to utilize soccer as a vehicle for teaching transferable skills and afford an opportunity at higher education for under-served communities in the Greater Springfield area by providing premier level soccer coaching to players who may not have the financial means to benefit from club soccer.
"One of the issues in the United States is that elite level soccer at youth level is and has been for the most part pay to play, clearly then, when you are talking about economically disadvantaged inner-city, you've got a problem."Sunil Gulati 2013 United States Soccer Federation (USSF) President. The Inner City Initiative accepts donations year-round.
