Mission Statement

Our goal is to use soccer as a tool to enhance the lives of children in need by engaging them in educational opportunities.  By building community through soccer and leadership training, we seek to remove barriers by bringing children together from different ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds.




For over 10 years, Creative Player Sports, Inc. has reached thousands of young soccer players in the greater Charlotte, NC area with its highly acclaimed soccer learning system. The Creative Player Foundation was founded in an effort to bring this training system to children from lower income families.  Our goal is to provide access to sports and educational programming, removing the socioeconomic and cultural barriers that prevent children in at-risk urban communities from participating due to high costs. We aim to use soccer as a motivational tool to encourage children in impoverished areas of Charlotte to succeed in different aspects of their lives.
