Our after school soccer programs focus on health and education at school sites in at-risk neighborhoods. A healthy lifestyle through the practice of soccer improves children’s confidence and self-esteem, builds social skills and teaches team work.

YOUTH SOCCER PROGRAMS
The Hugo Sánchez Soccerland Foundation is dedicated to promoting youth soccer and consequently playing an important role in the development of youth throughout San Diego. The skills youth learn while involved in the Foundation are skills they take with them when they venture out into the real world. They learn integrity, commitment, team-work and excellence; as well as how to cope with the success and failures they experience through their lifetime.
We are proud to offer after school soccer programs throughout San Diego. These programs are designed to be interactive, make physical fitness fun, and teach children how to stay active and healthy. From time to time, past and present professional soccer players will serve as guest coaches at our programs.
Our programs will be open to boys and girls ages 5 to 18. No prior soccer experience is necessary to participate in our programs. Children will be shown the fundamentals of the game, such as controlling, passing, and shooting. In addition, children will perform exercise and fitness activities focused on improving their agility, balance/body mechanics, cardiovascular endurance, and strength. All participants will learn the importance of proper hydration and how to prevent injuries.
Hugo Sánchez is heavily involved in the Foundation and the development of the children, using the Hugo methodology, which he has refined through years of experience in professional soccer.
