For the Cedar Lake Boys & Girls Club, one program this community loves is soccer.

“Years ago, our club staff started an indoor soccer program. It was perfect timing! Soccer caught on quickly in our community and we had the perfect gymnasium to hold skill-building practices for soccer and competitive indoor games,” says Adam Clough, club director for the Cedar Lake Boys & Girls Club.

As part of healthy lifestyle programming, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana works to keep children active a minimum of five days a week for thirty minutes by offering a host of activities. Cedar Lake Club members gravitate toward soccer. With the ever-expanding soccer program, the club recognizes soccer players, teams, and coaches at an end-of-season celebration.

“Our soccer banquet is a highlight. We have so many parents, club members, family members, and community individuals that join us for our soccer banquet. It is a big deal,” Clough said.

To help with the soccer banquet, one such group that supports the Club’s soccer programming is Knights of Columbus Marian Council 3840. Recently, this council gifted the Cedar Lake Club with $2,425 in support of the soccer banquet.

“We have such a long standing relationship with our Knights of Columbus. Their gift to ensure our Club members have the very best during our Soccer Banquet speaks volumes about how much they care for our community and our youth residents. We are very grateful,” said Clough.
