Huntertown Lions Soccer
Huntertown Lions Club Soccer program, the Hurricanes, is a Non-Profit & volunteer based youth program for our community. All Board Members and Coaches are Volunteers. We provide fields, instructional material, balls, training pinnies, training cones and 1st Aid kit for all our coaches. Also, coaches are encouraged to attend and help out, to get hands-on training at our Academy practices to add to their wealth of knowledge of soccer and coaching!
Indiana Youth Soccer has organized and will oversee operations for the North East Select Soccer League (NESSL)! Which is currently, four Recreational Clubs here in North East Indiana; --Huntertown Lions Soccer Club
--Huntington YMCA Recreational Soccer
--Auburn Rangers YMCA Recreational Soccer
--The Plex, United Cadets Recreational Soccer
Indiana Youth Soccer also announced that they will be changing the name of Indiana Rec+ Soccer to Indiana Select Soccer for the State of Indiana so it is not confused with Indiana Rec Soccer!
The Rec+ schedule will be posted on our NESSL (Rec+) tab!
The NESSL is projected in the Fall to have 2 or 3 more Recreational Clubs.
Select Age Divisions for the Spring 2017 will be:
