High Schools


Getting Started

  • Early in the season, or even at tryouts, run 1 or more Instepper Challenges. Challenges are great tools to gauge playing and leadership talent. 
  • If the players enjoyed the Challenges, determine if there is enough interest to use Instepper as a FUNdraiser for the season.
  • If there is interest, ask/determine which players want to manage the FUNdraiser.


  • Make fundraising fun, and LUCRATIVE!
    • Forget about selling candy bars or discounts to local restaurants. Who likes doing that?
    • Instead, have your players fully invested in the fundraising process by leveraging their soccer skills and experiences. 
  • Your team will become a much closer team as they as work together to improve younger players' first-touches and offer them a high-quality service.
  • In California, during the pregame captains/coaches meeting, referees remind the teams that, "The game is an extension of the classroom." The Mentoring Program will also be an extension of the classroom by developing soft skills in your players.
  • Since your season is so short, you typically can't devote too much time to fundamentals. Instead, when your players become Instepper Mentors, they, along with the younger players they are mentoring, will improve their FIRST-TOUCH.
