Get’em in Gear’s aim is to provide as many young lovers of the beautiful game around the world with a full kit comprised of a jersey, shorts, socks and boots. Using your gently used apparel and monetary donations, we create, package and ship our Get’em in Gear Kits to those young footballers in need.
This idea behind the Get’em in Gear initiative came from years of coaching high school soccer in Toronto. The value of looking and feeling like a player and a team not only increased the confidence of players on the field, but more importantly it did so off the pitch as well as this created comradery and a sense of belonging to many students.
Get’em in Gear is fortunate enough to have the assistance of a group of young and dedicated footballers and leadership students who see the importance of sharing their love of the game with people around the world. The initiative hopes to further entrench the idea of a global community where we can all make a difference in the lives of others, even in the smallest way.
