San Antonio FC and Silver & Black Give Back Announce Youth Soccer League
SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio FC and Silver & Black Give Back, the official nonprofit of Spurs Sports & Entertainment (SBGB) today announced the launch of a new youth soccer program, the SAFC Micro League. The league will expand Silver & Black Give Back's youth sports programs to include soccer for children around the city and in deserving communities. Registration is available now at sanantoniofc.com/microleague.
The SAFC Micro League will provide recreational and instructional soccer to San Antonio's youth while also promoting leadership, responsibility, teamwork and making positive choices. San Antonio FC and Silver & Black Give Back are committed to offering a chance for San Antonio's youth to play and learn the game of soccer.
Registration costs will be $100, and Silver & Black Give Back will sponsor eligible children from local nonprofits across the city. The league will be offered for boys and girls ages 4-7 and each league cycle will run for a six-week period with practices and games taking place on Saturday mornings at STAR Soccer Complex.
"We are excited to collaborate with SBGB in launching the SAFC Micro League," said SAFC Managing Director Tim Holt. "This new instructional program enables us to introduce the beautiful game to local children within an environment that prioritizes having fun and staying active."
Proceeds from the SAFC Micro League will go towards developing homegrown soccer players through the SAFC Pro Academy. The SAFC Pro Academy is a fully-funded program dedicated to identifying and training players in the San Antonio area to provide a pathway to become a player for the SAFC first team, national teams, or college soccer. The Academy currently fields five age group teams that compete in the Development Academy, the highest tier of youth soccer in the United States.
Youth programs including the Spurs Youth Basketball League, SAFC Micro League, youth hockey, San Antonio FC Pro Academy, and Junior Austin Spurs encourage young children in San Antonio and Austin to not only stay active but develop essential character traits.
