The Sting Soccer Foundation believes in the importance of giving back to one’s community. Leaders begin through service. In an effort to inspire a spirit of service among our communities and players, we created the 10,000 Hours Initiative.

The 10,000 Hours Initiative is our mandate to have every Sting soccer player donate ten hours of community service to their respective communities each year. With over 1,000 players currently playing in the Sting Soccer Club, our efforts will generate over 10,000 hours of community service in the next year starting July 1, 2009. In the past, our players have participated in many causes benefitting local homeless shelters, children’s hospitals or medical centers, and youth-oriented programs. Our hope is to create a habit of service among our players and extend our reach into the community.

As the year progresses, we plan to document and post our players’ efforts in our community service photo album. We want to spotlight the different initiatives our players volunteer in so that you may keep up with their progress as they work to better the community.
