“Working in various capacities with Coach Smith over the past few years, I have come to know him as one of the top honorable and character people not just in the soccer world but in life. This was our main goal, to find a program that was not only led by staff like Jerry and Marco who share our similar values, but also to get the opportunity to help at need youth develop the necessary life skills to be successful and have a brighter future. We are more than honored to have Coaching For Life and the Power of Futbol as our 2016-17 donation partner.”
On behalf of our Coaching for Life Academy and the Power of Futbol, I would like to thank iSoccerPath and Jeff Jaye for this generous donation.” Jerry Smith stated “This money will be used to buy equipment for the Power of Futbol After School Program which is aimed at teaching life skills through soccer in many of our underserved locations in the Bay Area.
