About Passion for Soccer

Passion for Soccer (PFS) aims at helping soccer players with cognitive and physical disabilities acquire fundamental skills, develop new techniques, and confidently move forward in their soccer journey. PFS provides a wide range of videos to support our athletes, with a focus on making soccer enjoyable. PFS was founded by four high school students from San Diego, California who all desired to give athletes with physical and cognitive disabilities the opportunity to experience the game they love. They aspired to share their love of the game by creating soccer videos showcasing inclusive drills, creating a curriculum analogous to a club practice schedule, running camps in person, and creating an online interactive platform for athletes with disabilities to experience soccer with other athletes.
