Santa Monica Soccer Academy's #PickUpTen campaign is in keeping with our mission statement: Using The Beautiful Game to grow healthy bodies & empower young minds to build a better tomorrow.  An idea inspired by the players themselves who see so much trash left on the beaches every day. Now a part of their daily routine, the players  are leading the way by making #PickUpTen a part of their soccer warm-up routine which now includes dynamic and stationary stretching, ball work, and each player picking up ten pieces of trash. What if every beach goer were to pick up ten pieces of trash EVERY TIME they visited the beach. In a single Summer we could remove  MILLIONS of pieces of plastic, paper, glass, and cigarette waste from our beaches. Let's all chip in to help keep California beautiful . #PickUpTen
