Campers at the Kick, Lead, and Dream summer camp pile on their coach, bottom, in green shirt. The relationships among campers and their coaches is a special element of the camp, which encourages positivity, leadership and good sportsmanship.
To the casual onlooker, the Kick, Lead, and Dream soccer camp looks like a typical summer activity for local children. But for the campers and students involved, it is so much more.
Kick, Lead, and Dream aims to create a fun environment where motivated high school student coaches volunteer to become role models and provide at-risk kids from Mountain View and Sunnyvale public schools the opportunity to improve their soccer skills, learn valuable leadership qualities and gain the confidence to dream big.
