In partnership with the US Soccer Foundation, FLIPANY’s certified coach-mentors teach the Soccer for Success program, which empowers players to establish life-long healthy habits through a curriculum designed to blend nutrition education and mental well-being with soccer activities. FLIPANY’s coach mentors encourage and aid in positive development through modeled behavior, leadership development, and team building, while providing youth with an emotionally safe environment.
Soccer for Success provides 3 days of Physical Activity for participants. FLIPANY’s instructor will provide 1 hour of instruction for approximately 20 youth (per group), two times per week for 16 weeks. In addition, FLIPANY will ensure that your site and staff are equipped with tools, gear and the skill set to allow students to engage in a weekly soccer scrimmage. All Soccer for Success participants will receive uniform and soccer ball. All sites receive instructional coaching balls and goals.

Older teen participants can learn to mentor younger players in the program and become Coach-Mentors.
FLIPANY’s Coach-Mentors meet with families and guardians to share the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle, to serve as role models, and to share ways to support their children’s personal growth.
The Soccer for Success curriculum was developed by the U.S. Soccer Foundation and has been proven effective by independent research in more than 400 sites across the country.
