    About Our Program

    With its long history of promoting soccer in Northeast Ohio, we are developing the next generation of Cleveland Premier Soccer players, to take Ohio, midwest and national soccer programs to the highest level of competition. Croatia’s Premier soccer program is based on fundamental European soccer concepts and principals. We have an elite coaching staff, and a sound foundation in skill development. We set a standard which players must be able to attain, i.e. a measure of competency to continue to participate on a competitive team. This approach will motivate players to practice on their own, which will accelerate improvement and improve the standard of play throughout the club. We continue a high standard of developmental training for all coaches and players to maintain the strength and depth of all our age groups within the club.

    Our players hail from Mentor, Willoughby, Mayfield, Kirtland, Lyndhurst, Highland Heights, Perry, Painesville, Wickliffe, Chardon and West Geauga as well as other programs through Lake, Geauga and Cuyahoga County.

    If your child has expressed an interest in developing their soccer skills or is interested in taking soccer to the next level, Croatia Cleveland hosts tryouts a few times per year. Please contact our staff to schedule a visit with one of our coaches.
