We are committed to creating safe places to play call mini pitches in our neighborhoods where space is often at a premium. Mini pitches are perfect spaces for pick up games and organized soccer programs. We convert abandoned courts, disused lots and empty yards into state of the art soccer fields for kids to play. So far the Orlando City Foundation has created seven mini-pitches, with plans in the works for many more!

Healthy lifestyle habits are learned at a young age and carried forward in life. We run community focused soccer programs at ten centers (including all of our mini-pitch locations) focused on teaching children not just soccer skills, but healthy lifestyle choices. The programs provide mentorship to help children increase their confidence and self-esteem and learn new skills while having fun.
Nutrition education is a large part of our soccer programming and a key component in battling childhood obesity. We are building community gardens in low-income areas to help to mitigate some of the problems that plague urban areas by increasing the availability of nutritious foods, strengthening community ties, reducing environmental hazards, reducing food miles and creating a more sustainable system.
