Grassroot Soccer is happy to announce the expansion of our partnership with Positive Tracks, an organization that helps youth use the power of athletics to raise money for charities.

St. Paul's tourney coordinatorsIn 2014, Positive Tracks is an official presenting partner of all Grassroot Soccer 3v3 Tournaments. They have granted Grassroot Soccer a $100,000 matching challenge grant to double the dollars youth participants raise for Grassroot Soccer through all 3v3 fundraising and awareness soccer tournaments in the U.S. Through this partnership, young people in the U.S. learn about HIV prevention and AIDS and also experience the power of hands-on philanthropy, and the rewards of connecting to a cause on their own terms and turf. In addition, Positive Tracks will be supporting the ‘philanthletic’ efforts of youth participants in GRS endurance events.

If you are a funder who’s interested in joining this effort, you can raise Positive Tracks’ challenge to Grassroot Soccer even higher. Contact us to hear more about this option, which lends added visibility and leverage to your partnership with Grassroot Soccer.
