THE MILWAUKEE SIMBA SOCCER CLUB (MSSC) utilizes soccer as an organizing tool to channel urban, minority, and low income youth into organized activities that are designed to promote soccer as part of a heathy lifestyle, including better nutrition and academic achievement. MSSC also affords members an opportunity to play and compete at the highest levels their soccer skills will allow.
FOUNDED IN 1996 the Milwaukee Simba Soccer Club is a nonprofit, city based soccer club, which works in Milwaukee’s central city, focusing on the development of young athletes as good citizens and excellent soccer players. After going dormant for a number of years, the club is currently experiencing a renascence as a central city soccer club. During the past 2 years the Simbas have developed 5 teams with 80 players. By emphasizing soccer fundamentals, physical fitness, nutrition, and healthy life skills, Simba teams are noted for their competitiveness, and excellent sportsmanship.
