Finding Inspiration on Every Pitch
Granda Soccer 4 Kids (Granda Soccer, Inc) is a non-profit organization that was started in 2015. Our mission is to collect soccer gear and equipment that will then be donated to less fortunate kids who play soccer. We also collect money donations that will be used to purchase soccer equipment based on the needs. We want to give less fortunate children access to soccer gear to help in their soccer development.
“Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.” – John F. Kennedy

Meet Our Family
Hello, my name is Anthony Granda. I am 22 years old and a recent college graduate from Saint Mary's College of California. I graduated with a major in Social Psychology and a minor in Business Administration. During my college experience, I played on the men's club soccer team for 3 years at Saint Mary's as a defender. Before college, I also played on the high school soccer team as a defender at Los Alamitos High School. I feel very lucky that I have been able to play on competitive club teams for so long. Outside of soccer, I like to go to the beach and hang out with friends and family. We are excited about our non-profit and the opportunity to share our love of soccer with those less fortunate.
I'm Nicholas Granda. I am 19 years old and a Sophomore at Gonzaga University with a major in Business Administration and a concentration in Management Information Systems. I love to play soccer and I can play any position my team needs me to play, but my favorite position is mid-fielder. I have had the chance to play competitively for around 10 years now on club teams and on my high school team at Los Alamitos High. Off the soccer field, I like surfing and I like hanging out with my family and friends. I am very excited to be doing the non-profit with my family and we hope to continue to do this for a long time.
Mom & Dad
Hello, I'm Carlos Granda and soccer has been such in important part of my life both when I was a kid and also as an adult. I have been playing, watching, or coaching futbol (soccer) my whole life. My father is from Ecuador and mother from Peru - I lived in Ecuador for a big portion of my young life and moved to California for high school. I have enjoyed coaching my kids' soccer teams (AYOS and Club Programs) throughout the years. Our non-profit brings two important things to life: 1) Our love for soccer and 2) an opportunity to help children around the work who less fortunate enjoy this beautiful game.
Hello, I'm Melissa Granda and I have enjoyed watching my kids play soccer. I didn't grow up watching soccer but I've grown to appreciate and respect the sport in my adult years. Our opportunity to bring our two passions together will build a family legacy that we can all be proud of/
