Programs that provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn, become competitive in and enjoy soccer, a game played on a field between two teams of 11 players with the objective of propelling a round ball into the opponent's goal by kicking or by hitting it with any part of the body except the hands and arms. The programs may provide coaching assistance to help participants play efficiently and work together as a team, and are often organized into leagues, i.e., groups of teams that are formed to play one another in organized competitions. Access to a soccer field and necessary equipment, uniforms, if necessary, and referees for games may also be available.
