AYSA’s very own Devon Linn of the U14 Galaxy has organized a FREE soccer clinic for boys and girls age 8 to 4. Devon and her teammates will be running the sessions with help from their coaches and parents. Devon is doing this as part of her community service project for the National Junior Honor Society.
While the clinic is free, Devon and her teammates will be running a concession stand and all proceeds will go to DuPont Hospital. So, even if you aren’t interested in the clinic, perhaps you could stop by and make a small donation.
Saturday, May 11 from 10:00-11:30am
Saturday, May 18 from 4:00-5:30pm
Clinic will be held on Field 9 at Sun Valley High School (past left field of the fenced in baseball field). Please come prepared with a soccer ball and shin guards if you will be participating in the clinic

AYSA is making them available to all AYSA members and their family and friends for $35 per ticket. (same as if you bought directly from the team, but $5 less AND no fees!). The schedule is below and the home games are listed in white. The schedule is also available for download by clicking HERE.

In October, Eric Segool (U10 Arsenal and U15 Galaxy coach) was part of a group of people who went to El Salvador to do some work at an orphanage there. There are about 20 boys that live there full time and another 50 kids that attend an after school program run by the orphanage. Eric had approached AYSA to see if there was anything we would be able to provide to the kids there. AYSA was able to donate a bunch of reversible jerseys for Eric and his team to take with them and give to the children. There is a link to the photo gallery below of pictures Eric and his team took while they were there. Seems like the kids enjoyed their new jerseys. Thanks to Eric for thinking about asking us to help out and for providing the pictures. Well Done Eric!!
On Sunday, October 7, our Special Needs players were surprised with a vist from 3 Philadelphia Union players. Gabriel Farfan, Michael Farfan, and Krystian Witkowski, fresh off their 1-0 win against New England the previous night, joined our Special Needs players and their volunteer buddies for a great afternoon of soccer. The kids enjoyed talking with the players, getting photos taken and interacting with the Union players. The players enjoyed themselves as well as you can see by Gabe’s tweet after the session. Thanks to the players and Jason Freedman from the Union for making this happen! Thanks also to the volunteer buddies who come from our own soccer programs. And a big thanks to Sue Vaughan and Danielle Albrecht for running the program!!
And the picture he tweeted
Saturday from 9am to noon at Sun Valley!!!
