Exciting Weekend of Soccer in the Queen City!

By M Stern, 07/17/19, 5:30PM EDT


ICC & Creative Player Foundation - partnership serving the community!

As you may have seen on social media, Creative Player Foundation was selected to be the ICC Legacy Project Partner for the Charlotte games for the next five years. 
As a result of this partnership, the competitive arm of our organization, Charlotte Metro FC, will provide coaches to lead a clinic with Megan Rapinoe at the House of Soccer located in Romare Bearden Park. 
Also, our own Executive Director, Daniel Araujo, will be playing in the All-Star Match on Friday night! 

Both of these events are open to the public. 

Please understand that although we are partnered with the ICC, we do not have any additional access or information other than the links we will provide for registering and the schedule we will add below. 

This weekend promises to be a great one for soccer in the Queen City, and Creative Player Foundation is playing a big role in all of it. We are so excited for the amazing opportunities our after school kids will receive on Saturday and we would love it if you would come out and show your support!!!
