Coronado Dons Soccer Team

Coronado High School has been a point of pride & the heart of its community since 1961. While most SUSD schools benefit from pockets of wealth, Coronado does not enjoy comparable affluence.  Nearly 65% of Coronado students qualify for free/reduced lunches & fall below the Federal income poverty levels. 

Since 1982, the Dons Soccer team has dominated the high school soccer arena despite lacking the resources of their competitors - boasting a 16-4 record in the 2018-2019 season & a 3A championship, their second state title in three years (4A in the 2016-2017 season). 

However, as the 2021 season unfolds, the team is met with challenges due to the pandemic. Many of the players’ families have suffered economic hardships due to job losses. Several players are forced to juggle school, soccer and part-time jobs to help put food on the tables in their homes.  They've been unable to participate in traditional forms of fundraising. 

We are calling on the community for help as we raise funds for items such as socks, warm-ups, and practice equipment.  Their roster consists of 40 young men committed to each other and a successful season. But, they need your help. Can we count on you for a tax-deductible donation?  (Tax ID#: 23-7275410).  All proceeds go directly to the team.
