Street Soccer 658 is able to host successful tournaments because of the generous help and donations from community partners. Every community partner has a direct impact on each player's experience, whether it is in the form of donated equipment or cooking up a meal for the players to enjoy. Research has confirmed the positive impact that Street Soccer tournaments have on participants. In a recent impact report on the Street Soccer USA National Tournament, positive outcomes were categorized into six broad themes:
- Building community and enhancing social networks
- Creating hope and positive outlook on life
- Cultivating an outward focus: trusting and helping others
- Fostering goal achievement
- Enabling healthy-related positive outcomes
- Enhancing self-esteem, self-confidence, and leadership ability
It is our goal to cultivate an atmosphere that will allow us to achieve all six of these outcomes. With your support we can make that goal a reality. If you do not see a sponsorship opportunity that suits your needs, please let us know. We will work together to find a giving level that is right for you.
