Van Buren Soccer Association
The Van Buren Soccer Association is a non-profit volunteer driven program designed to allow all children ages 3 1/2-19 to play the great sport of soccer, at a low cost in the Van Buren Township area. We are a group dedicated to our community and first and foremost our children. The purpose for our organization is to create a safe, fun, and nurturing environment where children can learn the technical and tactical skills of soccer to compete at any level a child chooses. Of equal importance is our goal to teach life skills such as teamwork, responsibility and commitment. These life skills go beyond soccer and will help children obtain more out of their schooling as they grow into adults.
*The VBSA welcomes all Van Buren residents & Non residents to join.
