Passback: Northwest Nationals Soccer Club to collect new and used soccer equipment for needy in U.S. and abroad

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

The Northwest Nationals Soccer Club (NWN) announced its launch of a new and used soccer equipment collection program for the purpose of outfitting needy youth.

The program will include the collection of new and gently used shoes, balls, uniforms, shin guards and other soccer-related goods.

NWN, a competitive premier-level soccer club, has launched the collection program in support of the United States Soccer Foundation’s Passback program ( to provide needed supplies to low-income youth worldwide. NWN has set a goal of collecting 500 pieces of equipment by May 20, 2012.

The U.S. Soccer Foundation created Passback to help meet the soccer uniform and equipment needs of all communities, regardless of income, gender or location. Since its inception, Passback has grown enormously, and thousands of pieces of equipment have been collected and distributed to schools, clubs, and youth organizations in the U.S. and abroad.

Donated soccer equipment should be in reasonable condition, as there are safety issues with gear that is in exceptionally poor condition. Gear may include shoes, apparel, balls, cones and any other soccer-specific equipment that may be put to good use. Donation receipts will be provided at the time of donation.

Through local organizations like Northwest Nationals, the U.S. Soccer Foundation can reach its goal of collecting and distributing a million pieces of soccer equipment. Opportunities to drop off new and used equipment will occur at NWN tryouts. Local time/date/locations are listed below, and can also be found online.

Dropoff locations are at the soccer fields. The schedule is as follows:
