Darius Slay Jr. partnered with Coastal Outreach Soccer in 2016 to launch his social initiatives in the areas of physical fitness, education, and community service. In 2018, COS at The Big Play Center of Excellence, a 1500 square feet portable building, was opened. The Big Play Center of Excellence is a free after school and summer program for middle school and high school students. The Breakfast of Champions is Darius’s annual event to raise funds to support COS programs. Darius’s financial support and advocacy has enabled the COS program and service footprint to experience exponential growth.
