about us

the Open Goal Project was created when two coaches in Washington, DC noticed a lack of opportunity for talented youth soccer players from low-income families.  after working to integrate several players from low-income families into the DC travel soccer landscape, Amir and Simon began to understand the challenges and obstacles that were preventing these players, with such great potential, from participating in the first place.  realizing that these systemic issues were so widespread, they decided a program was necessary to affect a positive change for those youth players who have been overlooked, as well as the American soccer landscape as a whole.  the Open Goal Project is a fiscally sponsored project of DC SCORES, a registered non-profit organization.
