Buffalo Soccer Club (BSC) was established in 2007 as a pilot program of Algonquin Sports for Kids, Inc., to enhance the lives of young people living in the City of Buffalo through sports and educational activities that are rooted in fun, ethical principles. BSC utilizes sports as a platform to encourage youth and family development in a safe environment by focusing on healthy life choices, the development of athletic identity, and positive behavior changes-specifically an increase in self-discipline, personal responsibility, and respect for self and others.

Since its inception, BSC has provided over 2,500 children with an opportunity to play soccer in the City of Buffalo. With our Soccer for Successgrant award, we expect to continue to expand our programming to an additional 750 children during the 2015-2016 school year.
