The opportunity to pursue talents and passions, be physically and mentally strong, make more friends, and brighten futures should never be limited to those who can afford it. All proceeds for this virtual auction go to scholarships for kids and youth to play competitive soccer. Help our soccer family stay strong and grow. Sports change lives.
Due to COVID-19 and wildfires, we have seen scholarship applications increase drastically within the last six months. Last year, our auction raised over $85,000 which created scholarships for over 800 players who would not otherwise be able to participate.
The CFC Soccer Ball Auction will bring our soccer club one step closer to making this enriching activity available to all children. One-hundred percent of proceeds will go to funding these scholarships and our youth focused soccer programs that have been directly impacted by COVID-19 and wildfires.
Capital FC is “more than a soccer club” and serves kids by:
- Using soccer as a way to teach life skills such as discipline, teamwork, emotional health, and working on our weaknesses
- Helping kids grab ahold of their education – we use soccer as a means to keep kids engaged with school and actively help kids get into college, some of whom are the first in their family to go to college
- Care for the disadvantaged – we use soccer as a way to care for those in our community who need it most. We provide scholarships to over 40% of our players who are at or below the poverty level, and we serve minority populations in a unique way, engaging partners to help connect families with resources.
- Creating a network of positive relationships – soccer has a unique ability to bring together people of all backgrounds. These relationships become some of the most important in kids’ lives and follow them well beyond their time at CFC
Want to help support the cause this year? We are grateful for your support in this unique and challenging season of life. In addition to recognition at the online/in person events, all auction sponsors will be permanently recognized at the CFC Complex as a part of our “KEEP THE BALL ROLLING” Campaign.
