The Caribbean Americas Soccer Association (CASA) is a 501 (c) 3, not–for-profit organization founded in August 2004, and registered in the State of Florida. We are an organization made up of volunteers and soccer enthusiasts from the various South Florida communities, dedicated to player development, and promoting and enhancing the game of soccer for youths living in Florida and in the Caribbean and Latin American countries. CASA?s goals are to develop and educate coaches, referees, and players, in addition to promoting a high standard of sportsmanship, as well as encouraging educational initiatives. As our mission statement clearly states, we at CASA seek to link “South Florida Soccer to the rest of the world by developing all aspects of the sport, and exposing the community to the highest level of the game”. We support soccer in our community as a medium to enhance our young people?s confidence and leadership skills, and to contribute to a brighter future for our communities and our countries. Further, CASA places great emphasis on education as demonstrated through the scholarships that are offered to high school and college players.
