Get out and get in the game by playing soccer. Playing soccer improves your fitness level, teaches good sportsmanship and is a great way to meet new friends.

You can sign-up for a youth program by contacting your US Youth Soccer State Association.

In 2007, US Youth Soccer created "Get Out and Get into the Game" public service announcement to encourage children to be more active and adopt healthier habits. The PSA shows kids playing a game of soccer against a team representing common bad behaviors: Obesity, Soda after Soda, Too Much TV and Junk Food. The children triumph over these bad habits to win the match.
