Taos Youth Soccer League is a 501c3 nonprofit organization serving Taos County residents.
The object and purpose of the League is to encourage and support the playing of soccer by the youth of Taos County; to provide playing fields where soccer may be played; to enact rules and regulations pertaining to the playing of soccer; to provide or pay for, where necessary and/or appropriate, scholarships and materials to various youth participants in the League; and to seek to bring together, through the playing of soccer, youth and adults of both sexes and of all ethnic, racial and cultural backgrounds.
It is the mission of the Taos Youth Soccer League to use soccer as a vehicle for positive change in the lives of youth throughout northern New Mexico.
The Taos Youth Soccer League programs combine both soccer instruction and life skills education. Activities help the youth in our community come into a greater awareness of their physical being, self-expression and creative reasoning. Youth are encouraged to make healthy life choices for their futures while at the same time feeling a sense of community.
Many of the area youth come from disadvantaged situations due to a complex variety of social and economic factors. The Taos Youth Soccer League helps to fill the void where there is a lack of access to quality athletic and educational opportunities.
The Taos Youth Soccer League aspires to foster the physical, mental and emotional development of youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition.
