New Dimensions Soccer

New Dimensions Soccer is a Learning Organization styled after the model developed by the Center for Organizational Learning at M.I.T.'s Sloan School of Management which draws the blueprint for an organization "…where people expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire," detailed in the book The Fifth Discipline; The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization.

Ours is an outreach program that is, at its heart, multicultural and generative. Multicultural in the sense that we strive to connect with refugee, immigrant children and their families new to St. Louis from such war-ravaged countries as Liberia, Somalia, Afghanistan, and Russia, to name a few. Generative in the sense that we work to help build life skills for the underprivileged, assimilate immigrants, and expose hometown children to cultural diversity. We have witnessed unparalleled growth in the two (2) short years of our existence, starting with 4 teams in June of 2005, to over 120 teams in September of 2006.

How Does New Dimensions Create the Future We Desire?
…by providing a fun playing atmosphere that both reduces the stress of performance on children by limiting coaching and parental voices during play and thus, bringing forward the active creativity of the player in smaller-sided games (4v4). This is the single most important barometer of success, in our eyes.
…by promoting inclusion of all cultures interested in our model toward the goal of fostering tolerance and acceptance.
…by providing growth-promoting activities that can serve to impact the quality of a life.
