Hunt4Soccer is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing at risk children the opportunity to not only learn, play and enjoy the game of soccer, but to teach the importance of team effort, fair competition and good sportsmanship. The program works with several after school programs. Each Hunt4Soccer participant receives a new soccer ball. Hunt4Soccer has provided new soccer balls to over 30,000 children.

Hunt4Soccer was founded in memory of Hunt Silcock whose untimely death from a sudden illness at the age of thirteen in December of 2002 was a shock to all who knew him. Hunt was an exceptional young man, and excelled in so many areas of his life none more so than the game of soccer. His love and passion for the game began at a very early age and continued throughout his life. Hunt played soccer with such drive and enthusiasm that he established himself as a role model, not only for the young players in his soccer club ( the Comets based in Dallas, Texas), but for the older players as well.
