In the same way that Kansas City has embraced its soccer team, the soccer team has embraced the city...This is an organization that knows that being a champion isn’t just about what you do on the field. It’s also what you do off the field. I know that the entire city is very proud of you.

Those were the words of President Barack Obama as he welcomed Sporting Kansas City to the White House on Wednesday to formally congratulate the club on their 2013 MLS Cup championship and to recognize the team's commitment to the community. In that spirit, The Victory Project and DC Scores teamed up to host a youth soccer clinic on the South Lawn following the ceremony inside the East Room.

While at the nation's capital, Sporting Kansas City players also participated in the #EatSmart campaign geared towards expressing why its important to practice healthy habits. Head Fitness Coach Mateus Manoel has been with the team for five seasons, providing valuable guidance pertaining to health and fitness both on and off the field. When a collection of players were asked why they #EatSmart, here's what they had to say:

Sporting Kansas City concludes their trip to the nation’s capital tonight when they take on D.C. United at 7 p.m. CT at RFK Stadium.
