Before Gio Banks joined Soccer for Success, run in partnership with the JT Dorsey Foundation, he had never played soccer. Gio’s dad played basketball for most of his life, so that was the most familiar sport to Gio. Now, Gio is seen as a soccer ambassador at his school. Through his charisma and enthusiasm, Gio’s participation in Soccer for Success has inspired many of his classmates to follow suit. “Kids who used to walk by the field, peer through the fence, then keep walking, now spend their time on the field,” says Pat Hardy, Board Member at Kensington Soccer Collaborative - the site where Gio participates in Soccer for Success.
