Community Soccer Ball Box

The GOALS Council Community Soccer Ball Box is designed to increase participation in soccer through the simple act of sharing a ball.

Have you found a box in your community? Feel free to grab a ball and play – no field or game rules are required. Do you have an extra soccer ball that you no longer use? Share it with your neighbors by simply adding it to the box.

Take a ball. Have some fun. Leave a ball for the next one.
