Chester Upland Youth Soccer
Every child deserves a coach that cares, a positive team and a safe place to play.
Chester Upland Youth Soccer provides after-school and weekend soccer programming, including mentorship and nutrition education, for nearly 500 kids in underserved communities each year. During COVID-19 restrictions, CUYS provided equipment for Zoom sessions and individual training, and hosted a variety of at-home activities via Zoom, engaging the kids in art, STEM, reading, cooking, dancing and other healthy fun.
CUYS has impacted over 2,500 youth since 2012. Our data shows that 79% of CUYS participants that are at greater risk of developing health issues have improved their BMI (Body Mass Index) during their time in our program.
Your donation will fund jerseys, balls, healthy snacks, transportation, tournament fees, family engagement activities and other expenses that help us share the game of soccer and so much more.
