The Coastal Outreach Soccer Program is a coordinated effort involving the Glynn County School System, Brunswick Recreation Department and local certified coaches. COS was founded in 2004 with 15 players from the Head Start program. COS started as an in-house recreational level soccer program with 1st generation soccer players and coaches. By 2005 the program was providing activities for 60 underserved and underprivileged youth annually. Today, COS teams play at a competitive level against clubs with far more resources and larger player pools. Despite this, COS teams have won Georgia Recreational and Parks District Titles in 2011 and 2012 and continue to compete well against soccer clubs throughout South Georgia and North Florida. Moreover, educational mentoring that is a core ingredient of the program has helped COS players stay academically on track and has played a part in enabling a number of players to earn athletic and academic scholarships upon graduation.
