Contact
For more information, please contact our Vice President, Shannon Young at (440) 897-3440 or shanzy3@yahoo.com.

Our Basic philosophy for the Coed U10-U11 Recreation soccer program is:
  • Developing the mind, body, and self-esteem through sportsmanship, education, skill, teamwork, exercise and enjoyment.
  • Encourage the development of a positive team attitude through cooperative team play.  The attitude and practice of winning at any cost is not acceptable.
  • A commitment to benefit the majority of Avon Lake youth, not only the talented few. Thus  our  programs shall stress maximum participation from all athletes, regardless of ability. Our programs shall be designed to provide evenly balanced competition.
  • Ensure minimal pressure on youth players from coaches, spectators and parents and encourage youth to simply do their best.
