If you and your high school team are looking for a new soccer fundraising idea to do this year, why not start with something you are good at, soccer! You can make your fundraiser a soccer training camp, or just a soccer contest day.
Make the idea very simple. Invite all the local kid’s soccer team in your area, their coaches, and their families to join you for a fun day of soccer. To attract the most people, let the event be free. Divide into groups and have a couple of members from the high school team teach the children easy maneuvers and plays. Go over dribbling, passing, and shooting with the younger kids. At the end of the day, have a scrimmage against the different teams.
You can also have a soccer contest day. Allow younger kids in the area to join you for a shooting contest. See if any of the children can make a goal with the older kids in as goalie. Have a juggling contest to see who can keep the ball in the air the longest. Have a trick contest to determine who has the most unique moves.
While all of this is going on you can have a table set up by the field with candy to purchase. Candy fundraising is very popular and very profitable. If the event is free, parents will be more willing to spend money on candy as a donation toward the high school soccer booster club fundraising. Any candy that is leftover can be sold to friends and family. You can even volunteer to set up a concession stand at the next city-league game to sell off the rest of the candy from your fundraiser.
Be creative with your soccer fundraising. Let the team come up with more ideas or activities for the soccer day. Soccer fundraisers can be really fun when you start with what you know!
