Littleton Soccer Outreach Program

 

The Littleton Soccer Outreach Program (Program) was founded in 2006 with the express purpose to provide soccer for elementary aged children at Title 1 Littleton Public Schools (LPS). The majority of the children participating in the Program could not otherwise afford to play in an organized league with scheduled practices, designated coaches, uniforms, and referees. The Program has grown from one school with two teams to four schools with eight teams consisting of over 130 boys and girls playing in the fall and spring seasons. Teams practice at their individual school and are coached by a member of their respective school’s staff, games are scheduled at school or nearby recreation fields close to the participating schools. An Outreach league has been established and the players, along with their parents, grandparents, and other relatives look forward to the games every season.

The Program provides these children an opportunity to play the game they love in an organized structure and they receive the benefits of Littleton Soccer’s “Developing Players for Life”. They experience and learn sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership, the joy of competition along with being part of a team. The Outreach Program has been and continues to be a very successful due to the work and dedication of many individuals in Littleton Soccer and Littleton Public Schools.

In recognition of his longtime service on the Littleton Soccer Board of Directors, this important program is being renamed to the “Jim Bain Outreach Program”. Jim served on the Board for over twenty-five years in many capacities including President and he was one of the early volunteer coaches in the Outreach Program. Thank you for your service Jim!
