Wonderful opportunity: FREE clinic and chance to participate in the Santa Fund Classic!

We are excited to announce a wonderful opportunity for registered AYSO players in 12U and under to be part of the Santa Classic, an all-star soccer game played by the best senior players from across the entire region. The North plays the South, and there is a boys and a girls game. Normally this game is played in November, after the varsity soccer season concludes – but COVID forced a cancelation.

The game has been rescheduled for April, and The Tribune-Democrat, which presents the game, approached us with the idea of getting AYSO involved.  There will be a FREE clinic (Friday, April 16 ) for 12U divisions and under, run by coaches and the high school players – and then a parade on game day (Saturday, April 17) with youth players accompanying all-star players onto the field.

Many all-star players have roots in AYSO so we see this as an awesome combination. To participate:

  1. Players must be registered for the spring 2021 season in the 12U and under division.
  2. We would love to have players in uniform so if possible, please have them wear this year or another year’s jersey.
  3. Register your player to participate in the clinic at: . The clinic is free, but we need to know who plans to take part.

The schedule is as follows:

  1. Friday, April 16: Youth AYSO soccer clinic (12U and under), 5-7 p.m., at Trojan Stadium (at Greater Johnstown High School).
  2. Saturday, April 17: Santa Fund Soccer Classic high school all-star event at Trojan Stadium in Johnstown.
    - Girls game at 3 p.m.
    - Boys game at 5:30 p.m.
    - Games to be preceded by parade of AYSO youth players (approx. 2:45 p.m.)

Admission to the all-star game is free. However, the event is a fundraiser for the Santa Fund, which is the Tribune-Democrat’s fund to help area families who cannot afford Christmas presents for their kids, and monetary donations will be collected. We encourage you to give generously!
