Drone Soccer Competitive Team
What is Drone Soccer?
What is "Building Leaders Circle?"
Drone soccer is a thrilling indoor team sport played with radio controlled quadcopters in protective exoskeletons designed for collisions. Five player teams face off in a netted arena where they ram and block the opposing team to prevent them from scoring. But before pilots can compete they must first learn to build, program, fly, and repair high-performance drones, learning engineering skills towards exciting careers in aviation. Leaders of Excellence (LOE) is one of the first nonprofit organizations to incorporate Drone Soccer in Birmingham, AL for students (Ages 13-18).
Building Leaders Circle
Leaders of Excellence has served over a hundred youth, and many of our students were voicing some of the same concerns. Students are experiencing issues with education, violence, self-care, self-esteem, mental health, and peer pressure just to name a few. Many are experiencing these issues and do not have an outlet to share their experiences. We heard our students and the Youth Advisory Council decided to create a safe space for our students called, “Building Leaders Circle.” Building Leaders Circle is a place where students will not only discuss some of the problems they’re facing, but also create solutions. Our conversations with students are solution focused.
