Message from the Founders

“As childhood friends, in Ireland, we grew up playing soccer. Because of our love for the game and the appreciation of the values instilled through sport, we both pursued degrees in Sport Science & Health (B.Sc.) at Dublin City University. During our summer breaks, we traveled America and discovered a shared passion with kids all over this country: soccer. We started coaching soccer camps for children of all ages. But our experiences with these kids made us want to find ways to incorporate an educational component that would encourage learning through play. Soccer motivated us to live happier and healthier lives and education allowed us to share our love of sport in a broader and more meaningful way. So, we developed Sports For Learning and today we continue to positively impact the lives of hundreds of thousands of kids.”
