Membership in our Federation means being part of a nonprofit (501(c)3 mission to bring positive youth sports, family values, and skills that can be used both on and off the pitch alive in our community and specifically to our next generation of good-citizen adults. We value respect, hard work, healthy habits, outdoor activity, sportsmanship, teamwork, volunteerism, and improving ourselves through both individual and community action.
As our name "Areté" implies, we are about Excellence in all things!
Our volunteer members are the backbone of our Club and a driving force in our community. Parents who join enjoy the benefits of spending time with their kids and neighbors in a safe, fun, and active environment. Volunteers from all over our community add their various skills and talents to a growing pool of positive people.
Fundraising, awarding SSL hours, grants writing, marketing and communications, flipping burgers, or marching in our parade - to coaching and directing field activities... all of it is volunteer powered in our Club. Ours is a community that referees like to referee in. Our sidelines are friendly and helpful. Our sports are fun and educational in our Community program and intensely competitive in our Competitive program.
We offer to the community what the community wants and is willing to support. This is your Club, and membership in your Club is a boost to families and to our community!
