Let The Games Begin!
Amidst sunny skies and cheering children, the fall soccer season of Project Coach got underway in emphatic style this past Tuesday and Wednesday.
- 24 Teenage Coaches
- 125 Elementary School players from 4 elementary schools.
- 5 Smith College Graduate Students
- 4 Program Coordinators
This record setting performance has been the result of months of collaboration between Smith College, Gerena Elementary, Brightwood Elementary, Chestnut Middle School, Lincoln Elementary, Springfield Parks and Recreation, and the Brightwood Medical Clinic. Critical funding was provided by the New North Campus Coalition, The Davis Foundation, Justice for Athletes, and other generous private donors.
Thank you for your continued interest in Project Coach. We look forward to a busy and action-packed fall of playing, coaching, and mentoring, as we continue to expand and grow the program.
