The Native American Soccer Coaches Community serves Native American communities throughout the United States by providing positive youth development, using soccer as a means to promote health and wellness, youth leadership and life skills. We partner with the United Soccer Coaches to provide a soccer curriculum that is designed to promote physical wellness (improve muscular and cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, agility and strength), mental health (positive outlook, cognitive thinking, problem solving, leadership skills and prevention) and teach soccer skills, techniques and tactics.

Our goal is to use soccer as a vehicle to promote character, integrity, leadership, respect and teamwork. We believe that by expanding coaching education to reservations and pueblos throughout the U.S. we will be able to move in a concerted effort to increase the level of coaching we provide and serve as positive role models for the children we serve.
