Thank you for considering a donation to Kick it Forward.

In 2017, Kick it Forward will identify several donation initiatives.

As a part of its initiatives, Kick it Forward is committed to providing soccer scholarships to at least five kids that demonstrate the requisite skill and ambition to participate in the Iowa Soccer Association's 9U/10U academy program through a Des Moines metropolitan soccer club, yet lack the financial means to participate. Your donation will help Kick it forward reach its goal.

In central Iowa, it costs approximately $500.00 per year in fees for a 9 or 10 year old to participate in the Iowa Soccer Association’s academy program. The academy program is suited for kids that demonstrate an advanced level of soccer skill and ambition at young ages, and who wish to use the program as a foundation for skill development in order to prepare them to tryout and participate in a select soccer program when they turn 11 years old. The program benefits kids because the participants learn soccer in an age appropriate environment from experienced, professional coaches while training and playing games with kids of similar ambition and skill.

Unfortunately, the approximate $500 fee plus uniform costs, tournament costs, travel costs, etc. makes it financially impossible for many Des Moines area families to finance their child’s participation in the academy program even though they demonstrate the skill and ambition to excel at soccer. This precludes many talented Des Moines youth from access to fun, competitive, and learning soccer environments that they could use as a foundation to continue to develop as soccer players throughout their youth soccer careers.

Your financial contribution will help Kick it Forward scholarship five of these kids. Thank you for your consideration.
