Welcome to Shaker Youth Soccer Association

We pride ourselves on being a solid community soccer program that aims to develop a player's ability and passion for the game.

Our Mini-Kicker program starts at the age of four (4-5) and works with our SYSA staff coaches in a fun and energetic environment.  This is where our aspiring players are constantly engaged in activity to help develop their foundational skills.

For our 5-6 year old players, we have our Mighty Kicker program.  This class is also taught by our SYSA staff coaches. This is a low-stress, fun-filled environment where these young players will start encountering game-based programs to continue to build their skills.

After our developmental programs, we offer a volunteer-led recreation league for Grades 1-6.  This league focuses on skill development and competitive play in a low-stress environment. 
- In the Winter, our recreation league is a skills clinic, once a week, led by our staff coaches.

When a player is ready for more structured play and competition, we encourage them to think about our competitive travel league. This league is focused on providing players with a higher level of training where players are evaluated for proper team placement.   
They play surrounding communities in the Fall and Spring on outside fields. All Winter games are played at the Force. 

Please take a look at the programs we have to offer and reach out with any questions.  Beachwood Soccer Program information can be found here:
