At Pinnacle Sports, clients ranging in age from toddlers to full-grown adults train in a variety of sports. A staff of qualified coaches helps kids of all ages practice soccer, baseball, volleyball, softball, jumprope, basketball, and lacrosse fundamentals during classes, youth leagues, and immersive summer camps. Meanwhile, adults build strong, healthy bodies during fitness bootcamps and personal-training sessions, or socialize through sports leagues and team parties. The facility fosters skill-building and physical development with a wealth of amenities, including two full-sized indoor soccer fields, indoor baseball/softball field, outdoor turf field, 10 batting cages, and supportive peers who can help improve high-five accuracy.
Skaters of all ages and arabesque abilities soar across Monroe Multi-Sports Complex's vast rink—the former home to 2011 NHL recruit Matt Mahalak. Though the rink acts as the complex’s nucleus of activity—hosting hockey games, figure skating exhibitions, skating lessons, and public skate sessions—, an adjacent field house promotes more land-based sports, including youth and adult soccer, dodge ball, and flag football. Additionally, a collection of springy inflatables allows young visitors to bounce for up to a full day or until they finally convince gravity to permanently reverse.
Passionate staffers stay on hand to offer skating tips during public sessions, assist guests as they sign for one of the soccer leagues, or be of assistance in case of a hot-chocolate overdose. In keeping with their commitment to physical education, the complex’s team of instructors also coach home-schooled children for credits, as well as give birthday children the gift of adrenaline-pumping exercise during party packages.
At Force Soccer Shoppes, soccer players gear up for on-field confrontation with a wide selection of apparel and gear. Replica jerseys inspire players to channel the adroitness of their favorite national or English Premier League players. Gear from brands such as Adidas, Nike, and Puma keeps players fashionable on the field. Sensitive shins can take refuge behind Force’s selection of shin guards, and 3/4-length soccer pants reveal tattoos of full-leg soccer pants
In 2009, the Cleveland City Stars folded, leaving the Sixth City without a soccer franchise to call its own. Two years later, the group of local soccer supporters known as the 6th City Syndicate finally found a new team to cheer for as AFC Cleveland (its initials: A Fans' Club) joined the National Premier Soccer League, finally bringing the beloved sport back to Cleveland's glacially-formed soccer stadiums. Bolstered by the Syndicate's support, the team surged into the NPSL spotlight in its very first season, winning the first-ever Rust Belt Derby and upsetting the Erie Admirals to claim the Great Lakes Conference championship.
Founded by sports enthusiast and former adolescent Rick Hart, Jump Start Sports works to enrich pupils' childhoods by developing useful life skills through athletics. Qualified counselors employ their wealth of experience working with children to help campers learn teamwork and fair play as well as the fundamentals of fielding baseballs, scoring soccer goals, or synchronizing pom-pom work. A course structure built around age-appropriate activities, group play, and free electives ensures that students never get bored, and an 8:1 pupil-teacher ratio enables one-on-one assistance to young champions as they practice the graceful art of pitching or the scheming intrigue of free-agent contract negotiation.
