Kicks for Kids group members are working to increase minority participation in youth soccer in Greenville County. On Martin Luther King Day 2011, group members will bring children to the Carolina Elite Soccer Academy to participate in a clinic led by area college men’s and women’s soccer coaches. Group members will also carry out a second event in June 2011, which will also open the new Kroc Center field in downtown Greenville.

Both events aim to increase attention and awareness in soccer, as well as provide the opportunity to sign up for recreational soccer at the Carolina Elite Soccer Academy.
