COOL Soccer for Success
Soccer for Success is a sports program that the COOL Education Project uses. Soccer for Success is used 3 days a week for 90 minutes a day. It incorporates Family Engagement, Nutrition, Mentorship, and Physical Activity for COOL Jackson, COOL Olde Towne, COOL Highland, COOL Brinkley, COOL Peeples, COOL Forest, and COOL Canton. It is beneficial for the peers in the same way as the students because the peers lead the SFS activities as trainers. This afterschool program serves not only the K-8th grade students, but also their families as we host Soccer for Success Events that are not held afterschool but on various weekends to reach the whole community. The COOL Education project utilizes Soccer for Success to reach one of our goals of eliminating health disparities.
