Dimensions Soccer is a Learning Organization styled after the model developed

Management which draws the blueprint for an organization "

book The Fifth Discipline; The Art and Practice of the Learning
Ours is an outreach program that is, at its heart,
multicultural and generative. Multicultural in the sense that we strive to
connect with refugee, immigrant children and their families new to St. Louis

teams in September of 2006.
