Since 2009, Super Soccer Stars has been focused on helping grassroots soccer education across the economically depleted, rural district of Matabeleland, Zimbabwe. Super Soccer Stars partners annually with United States-Africa Children’s Fellowship (USACF) and Round Star Foundation – along with generous support from Goldman Sachs Gives – to bring the joy of soccer directly to unprivileged children in Africa.
In 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 & 2016, Super Soccer Stars has sent delegations of coaches to Zimbabwe to work with hundreds of children and school teachers and provide week-long soccer clinics, adult education, and leadership training seminars as well as deliver used soccer equipment to these communities. In addition to teaching our own Super Soccer Stars classes, our coaches have worked with local educators and community leaders to teach the art of providing fun, engaging, soccer classes. Participation in the course has helped over 30 school teachers obtain their Level I and II ZISCA-accredited (Zimbabwe Soccer Coaches Association) Coaching Licenses.
Through our unique T.A.L.E.N.T. + Building Soccer Bridges initiative, we use soccer as the vehicle to build leadership skills, enhance self-confidence, and empower youth to make positive contributions to their communities. Click on these links to view our teams in action over the years:
