RAVE Programs

RAVE programs bring RAVE fields to life. They were designed by listening to community input and asking the question, How Can Soccer Help? RAVE programs use soccer as a vehicle to support learning, wellness and joy – and are provided on and around RAVE fields year-round.

RAVE programs support whole, healthy children of all ages, from preschool to high school, and serve youth in marginalized or under-resourced communities.

First Kicks

A WA State Learning Standards aligned physical literacy program for 3-5 year-olds that gives parents and educators the tools to help young learners move their bodies while developing their cognitive skills - using a soccer ball.

Goals for Art

An arts program inspired by soccer, Goals for Art fosters social-emotional wellness and belonging while affirming children as stakeholders in their communities. In this program, children create art that is ultimately used on and around their own RAVE community field.

Camps & Clinics

RAVE soccer camps and clinics offer free, high-quality soccer training in a positive environment. Camps and clinics are hosted on both RAVE Fields and nearby schools, parks and community centers. Uniquely qualified coach/mentors model inclusivity, teamwork and positive reinforcement so all participants feel supported while learning new soccer skills and having fun.

One Ball Program

The program aims to give 100,000 soccer balls to kids who need them by 2026. Balls are distributed at RAVE field openings, RAVE programs, school assemblies, and other key community gatherings.

TODAY: Through the One Ball program 40,0000 kids in nine communities throughout our region now have their very own soccer ball to play with on their nearby RAVE field.

TARGET: 100,000 balls to youth by the year 2026. Every child living within a walkable mile of a RAVE field will have their own ball to play with.

It comes complete with a full kit of equipment for each classroom or after school program trained on the curriculum. Science of Soccer is WA State Learning Standards aligned.
