460 free spots available thanks to Olympic City USA program
The City’s Sports Office opens registration for fall soccer on Monday, May 15. Thanks to a program created by Olympic City USA, the registration fee will be waived for the first 460 kids to sign up. Free spots are available in parks citywide from PreK-4th grade. The most spots will be available in the youngest age divisions and at practice locations in southeast and central Colorado Springs.
“We are proud to make youth sports accessible to more families in our community through this impactful program created by Olympic City USA,” said Mayor John Suthers. “Making soccer free means access to a healthy and beneficial activity for kids regardless of their income bracket. They are learning about teamwork, respect, and, most importantly, having fun.”
Since the program began in 2021, participation in the City’s youth soccer program has more than doubled across all age divisions. It’s possible thanks to grants from the Daniels Fund and the Dakota Foundation. Additional funding for this effort has been provided by Boeing, the Chapman Foundations, Children’s Hospital Colorado, Colorado Springs Utilities, Comcast, Gazette Charities Foundation and the Schuck Foundation.
