Play Better - African Canadian Soccer & Cultural Association
FOSTERING PLAYER DEVELOPMENT THROUGH CHARITABLE REWARDS.
Play Better is a simple yet innovative program that equips coaches to infuse values into sport, while teaching children to play better soccer. It accomplishes this by changing one thing — the rewards system.
With Play Better, players receive charitable rewards for achieving technical development milestones. The long-term impact is better players who understand positive impact beyond the scoreboard: citizenship, community investment, and personal growth.
HOW IT WORKS
Four simple steps you can customize for your team or club.
1. Choose Your Cause: Involve players in choosing a cause that matters to them.
2. Choose a technical goal: This “win” is a skills improvement metric (Ex: 100 completed passes per game).
3. Invite Parents: Invite parents to reward goals achieved with a small gift to the team’s cause.
4. Take it Online: Collect rewards, encourage participation and give to charity through a Chimp “Giving Group.”
