Santa Barbara Auto Group supports the growth and development of local youth through a sponsorship with Santa Barbara Soccer Club.

Santa Barbara Auto Group is a proud sponsor of the Santa Barbara Soccer Club for youth soccer. The Santa Barbara Soccer Club is dedicated to providing a safe environment for children and teens in Southern California to have fun, build character, and participate in competitive athletic events. Santa Barbara Auto Group finds it very important to support organizations like the Santa Barbara Soccer Club who encourage active and interactive outdoor options for children and teens in the community.

How does the Santa Barbara Soccer Club support youth?

The Santa Barbara Soccer Club serves children and teens from elementary age all the way through and beyond high school, with the intention of seeing every one of their members graduate. This organization is more than just soccer. It serves as a healthy outlet for students. The talented and caring staff of coaches and volunteers treats each of their players as individuals, hoping to assist them as they grow into the adults they wish to be. There is a real passion for soccer in this organization, and it’s visible through the relationship between the players and their coaches. According to the Santa Barbara Soccer Club, “There is no better forging ground for character than the soccer field and training ground!”

The Santa Barbara Soccer Club hopes to see each of its players reach their maximum potential on and off the field. For their members that are more passionate about the sport, they offer Development Academies, Players Academies, and other training programs to polish their skills and help them to stand out from the crowd. One of the goals of the Santa Barbara Soccer Club is to create a well-respected name in the national soccer community in order to generate the greatest number of opportunities for its members. The organization has already developed relationships with major colleges and universities extending throughout the entire country from the University of California in the west to Boston University in the east.

Santa Barbara Auto Group Supports their Vision

“It is obvious that the Santa Barbara Soccer Club cares about their local youth, and our principals here at Santa Barbara Auto Group run parallel to that. We are very proud to sponsor the Club and its members,” said Santa Barbara Auto Group Sales Manager, Duane Sanders.

Participating in community organizations and events is one of Santa Barbara Auto Group’s highest priorities. “We see our community sort of like we see an engine; each part must contribute to the whole in order for the vehicle to run at its full potential. Our local youth is very important to us, not just as future drivers, but as future contributing members of our society,” said Sanders.
