Come try out with us!

The Eastside’s Fastest Growing Club. Come see what all the excitement is about!

Croatia Juniors is a premier soccer club rich in history that was established in 1957 right here in Northeast Ohio. Croatia Juniors serves the soccer needs of boys and girls in Lake, Ashtabula,
Geauga and Cuyahoga Counties.

We train and develop soccer players from youth to high school ages.
Our training will prepare these players for competition at both the high school and collegiate level. Our teams compete in the local CASA League and our most competitive of teams play in the regional league called GLA / NPL.

Croatia Juniors are seeking youth soccer players ages 6-14 that want to work hard, want to grow the technical aspect of their game and intend to compete at the highest level and most importantly have fun.

We take great pride knowing we have one of the most experienced
and licensed USSF staffs in the area. We want all of you to come and experience our positive soccer environment. Just like our staff and administrators,

Croatia Juniors hopes to select players that exemplify that same passion for the game as our coaches, players with the inner drive, and players with exceptional character and sportsmanship both on and off the soccer field.

Croatia Juniors Monthly - April 2019


Croatia Juniors Monthly - April 2019

Please be sure to check out the April Edition of Croatia Cleveland Juniors Monthly.

In this month's edition we discuss the importance of staying hydrated when training, as well as to thank everyone who sold their allotment of raffle tickets, or more!  This is an important fundraiser for our club and will help us to continue to improve our facilities both indoors and out.  Thank you for your efforts as this is critical to maintaining the positive environment and success of our program!

We also wanted to take the time to recognize several of our players who have received acknowledgement of their excellent play on the field and are advancing to regional ID camps for the Midwest Regional Olympic Development Program (ODP), as well as the US Youth National Team training camp in Columbus.

Thank you for your continued support of Croatia Cleveland Juniors!

Kicks for Kids Program

Cleveland Croatia Juniors Soccer Club introduces the Kicks for Kids program, specifically designed for 4-8 year olds.  The program is meant to teach basic soccer skills using creative games that are challenging yet age-appropriate.  Each game will help build self-confidence, which is important in developing a child’s motor and social skills.  Ultimately, our goal is to create a positive experience that will lay the foundation for success in sports, education, and life.

Please 'click' on the flyer to take you to our Kicks for Kids home page, so that you can learn more about our program and our upcoming 2019 Spring Session.

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.
