Each year Challenger Sports donates valuable equipment, soccer balls and uniforms to many soccer based charities, schools, orphanages and missions in Central and South America and Africa.

Foundation Hand overIn 2011, Kansas City based Challenger Sports raised over $1 million dollars for youth soccer organizations throughout North America! Challenger provides a broad range of soccer services and products to thousands of soccer leagues and clubs, and has established itself as one of the largest benefactors in youth sports today.

Since their inception in 1985, the company has raised over $10 million dollars directly benefiting the players, parents and coaches involved in grassroots soccer programs in each of the 50 US states and in 7 Canadian provinces.

As an additional gift to each community, Challenger also provided free coaching clinics for the many local volunteer coaches. Challenger has partnered with the National Soccer Coaches Association of America to help provide grassroots training where it is needed most – to the mom or dad who has kindly given up their time to coach their child's team in the local league. In 2011 Challenger trained over 3,000 local coaches!

FoundationThank you so much for choosing to make a difference in the lives of our children! Our kid’s sports clinic was a huge success. We had over 60 kids who attended the clinic on Saturday. Attached are some of the photos from the clinic.

Again, thank you so much for your support!

Dear Mr. Arch,

I just wanted to thank all of you one more time for your incredibly generous donations. We were able to fill up 16 suitcases filled with cleats, balls, jerseys, shorts, shinguards, socks, cones and sweatshirts. The response was overwhelming. Last month, Oceans of Mercy was able to deliver the gear. Thank you for taking the time to get in touch with me and for delivering the goods. I've attached some photos below. Thanks again and best of luck to all your kids in their upcoming Spring soccer season.
