Street Soccer
Calgary Street Soccer is a registered non-profit organization formed to help homeless men and women get their lives back on track through the power of sport- specifically soccer. The benefits of playing a team sport are physical, emotional and psychological.
They include:

  • Increased self respect and confidence
  • A sense of accomplishment and purpose
  • Commitment to the team
  • Ability to schedule time and plan
  • Attempt activities that may be both physically and mentally difficult
  • Willingness to take calculated risks
  • Ability to work with an authority figure

By providing the facilities, equipment, and structure for a relatively inexpensive team sport like soccer the Calgary Street Soccer offers a positive, character building experience that players can carry into the rest of their lives.
