Teaching Life Skills on the Field

By being part of Thomas Jefferson’s co-ed Soccer team, students develop soccer skills and learn important life lessons, including the value of teamwork, discipline, goal setting, and perseverance. Through healthy competition, athletes learn good sportsmanship, self-discipline, patience, and the ability to be gracious in winning and losing.

Students do not need to have experience playing Soccer to participate. Our inclusive program allows all students to test new capacities and discover new talents without being cut from the Soccer team.

Our program also offers opportunities for your gifted and experienced Soccer player to gain more skills and develop into a highly competitive player.
