Go To Goal!

For 9 years, Go To Goal! has been providing under-served girls in Asheville with a successful after-school athletic and life skills program. Through the game of soccer, the program reaches teacher-refered girls between the ages of 8 and 11 and challenges them both mentally and physically in an effort to facilitate their academic and social development within the school setting. This life skills and athletics program is provided at no cost to participants, their families, or the school. ABYSA provides healthy snacks during practice, all of the appropriate soccer gear, and transportation to and from home for games and practices.

Each season, 10-12 girls participate in Go To Goal! In addition to working hard at practice, the girls get to demonstrate their progress each season in ABYSA’s U11 Recreation Program. This competition not only provides the Go To Goal! team with the opportunity to demonstrate their soccer skills, but it also offers them the opportunity to demonstrate the team chemistry and sportsmanship that the program strives to instill in each player.
