SYSA will achieve its Mission through a three-tiered structure comprised of Clinics, Recreation (SYSA Recreational), Competitive (SYSA Travel, High School) programs, which will provide development opportunities for Shaker residents and non-residents. The three-tiered structure supports all players by providing a supportive and rewarding environment that emphasizes fun and skill at a level that fits his/her interest and ability.
We seek to provide a culture of inclusion that starts at the grassroots level through a volunteer club structure. The board is active and divides responsibilities into functional areas. Paid staff operates at the direction of the board, executes the Association’s mission by fulfilling its daily operations. Volunteers execute the Association’s mission at the grassroots level and independent paid contractor coaches provide valuable coaching expertise for competitive teams and some recreational programs.
We seek to create a positive environment to teach soccer and life lessons through the game of soccer. We believe in developing youths in a three-dimensional manner: in athletics, life, and community.
We strive to be the best community soccer club in Northeast Ohio in all aspects.
