Grassroot Soccer Westchester


Due to the ongoing pandemic, we pivoted from our annual soccer tournament to online fundraising through social media.

About Grassroot Soccer Westchester

The GrassrootSoccer (GRS) Westchester Club was started by a group of teenagers, with family in South Africa and a love of soccer, who came together to help less fortunate young people in Africa and other countries by raising money and awareness for Grassroot Soccer. Last year, we hosted the fourth annual GRS Westchester 3v3 Tournament with over 100 participants from our community, friends and family. This year, although we cannot host our annual tournament, we hope you will continue to support GrassrootSoccer as Covid-19 is on the rise. In the communities where GrassrootSoccer works, there is a huge gap between what young people need for health education and services, and what’s available.  Did you know that HIV-related death rates have declined for all age groups except adolescents? By participating or contributing to the GRS Westchester Soccer Tournament young people can directly change the lives of people their age.
