Need a Soccer Ball?
If you do not have soccer a ball, AYSC has made a supply of used balls available on a first come, first served basis. Balls can be picked up (one per family please) at:
Cranky’s Bike Shop
2961 272nd Street
(please check website for current hours)
The big white bag in front of Cranky’s has smaller size 3 balls for younger players and size 4 and 5 balls for older players. Simply drop by the parking lot and grab a ball – no need to go into the store.
Our thanks to Cranky’s for partnering with AYSC on this initiative.
