Avon Lake Soccer Organization: Gino Strippoli Scholarship Fund

Gino Strippoli, In Memoriam, 1960-2006 Every group has a few volunteers that rise above the normal commitment. Gino Strippoli was one of these individuals. He was a coach (RecProgram, the Storm, the Wolfpack, the Eagles, the Wave and the Thunder), referee (USSF and High School), board member (President, Player Development, Fields) and tournament volunteer (Scheduler, Site Coordinator, Set-up/Take Down). Gino did it for two reasons: His love for soccer and Avon Lake Youth. On October 28, 2006, ALSO suffered a tremendous loss when Gino passed away while officiating a youth soccer tournament.

The organization received numerous suggestions on how to honor Gino. ALSO thought the best way was to continue what Gino always did and give back to the community. The Gino Strippoli Memorial Scholarship Fund was created and proceeds from the Father’s Day Tournament will help support the fund. It will award two scholarships annually to deserving high school seniors who exemplify the spirit of Gino’s dedication to soccer and community.
