youth-soccer-auburn-townshipAuburn Twp. – If your child could use an intensive week of soccer skills training in a friendly, professional atmosphere, with the added bonus of daily Team Talks for instruction in life-enriching Biblical principles, they will love Ambassadors Soccer Camp 9am-3pm, July 22-26 (Tuesday-Saturday) at Friendship Alliance Church in Auburn Township.

Ambassadors Soccer Camps are designed to give developing players (ages 6-14) the opportunity to learn basic and advanced skills in a positive, encouraging environment. Both technical and tactical instruction is given at individual and group levels, focusing on control, passing, heading, dribbling, shooting and defending.

Small-sided games and age-related competitions round out the daily program. The week concludes with individual skill competitions and the highly-anticipated ‘World Cup’ tournament and family picnic.

The coaching staff is comprised of experienced players and coaches — some local and others who play soccer for their countries. International coaches typically represent Holland, Brazil, Indonesia, South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, and/or Northern Ireland.

Online registration is available at www.ambassadorssoccercamps.com. The fee through May 31 is $130; $155 thereafter. Each camper receives an Ambassadors soccer ball, T-shirt, certificate of completion, workbook, plus special awards and prizes.

The headquarters for Ambassadors Football is located in Twinsburg. It can be contacted at (330) 963-6599.

Auburn Township –  Sirna’s Farm, located at 19009 Ravenna Road, recently opened its market for the season and will continue to be open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through October.
Established in 2001, the market is designed to give residents of northeast Ohio increased access to local, healthy and affordable food.  Starting as a pop-up tent used to sell a surplus of vegetables, the market has since evolved into a residential store front that sells a variety of fruits and vegetables, as well as free-range eggs, homemade sausages and grass-fed beef. In addition to items produced on the farm, visitors can also purchase locally sourced maple syrup, honey, jelly, nut butters, goat cheese and more.
“We’re excited to be opening our market for its thirteenth season,” said Craig Sirna, owner, Sirna’s Farm.  We take great pride in providing our community with a variety of home-grown products, and this year our customers will be able to enjoy the largest selection around of just Ohio Wines, the best of each vineyard.”
