The South Bronx is one of the poorest districts in the entire nation (U.S. Census Bureau, 2010). It also has the hunger rates and obesity rates among the highest the country. Together, the school districts perform the lowest in the state. At the same time, the borough, and the South Bronx in particular, have the fastest growing immigrant population in the city. South Bronx United aims to make a difference in this community by engaging at-risk and immigrant youth through their passion for soccer.
“We are continuously looking for ways to give back to the community,” said Rich Savage of Rye Youth Soccer. “We love to see kids enjoying the game and are glad that we could help see this through.”
The youth soccer club is a not for profit organization that provides an all-inclusive soccer experience for over 1,500 girls and boys in kindergarten through 12th grade. The club is run by a Board of Directors and is dedicated to letting youth experience the ins and outs of playing on the field.
About Soccer and Rugby Imports
Soccer and Rugby Imports was established in 1993, beginning its first seven years in a small retail strip in Westport, Conn. Since the year 2000, the Avalos family took over the business and quickly began to outgrow its modest Westport location. In 2004, as the popularity of soccer in the area increased, as well as the reach of the business, the store moved to nearby Southport, Conn. Four more locations have opened in the subsequent years: Ridgefield, Conn., Greenwich, Conn., Madison, Conn., and Bronxville, N.Y. Soccer and Rugby Imports has been supplying Connecticut's soccer clubs and organizations across the country and abroad for the past 20 years. From cleats and practice gear from the retail shop to customized jerseys, shorts, warm ups, and backpacks from the Team Sales department, thousands of people have been linked to Soccer and Rugby Imports. Soccer and Rugby Imports also carries exclusive gear.
