U12 Girls Division Champs

The U12 Girls team won their division in Fall 2023; new goals in background.

Special Thanks To 1st Golden Goal Sponsor

Apple Auto, an auto mechanic shop on Harford Road, was SFAAA's first Golden Goal Sponsor in fall 2023. [Photo of Apple Auto's logo and sign in front of a goal.]

Back in August, just before the start of the fall season, the SFAAA Board discovered they needed to acquire new goals for U12 boys and girls league play. This was a surprise new expense, but the Board moved quickly to find a local business willing to sponsor the purchase of this new equipment. 

That business, Apple Auto, owned by John Bittorf - known to the locals simply as BJ -- stepped up to become the first Golden Goal Sponsor with a $1,000 donation. 

It's no coincidence that this same season, with new goals and well-lined fields, the U12 girls team won their division. First place! 

Thanks to BJ and Apple Auto, on Harford Road, for believing in SFAAA and supporting recreational opportunities for youth in Northeast Baltimore. Apple Auto is one of many local sponsors who have continually supported SFAAA over the years.

If you're a local business interested in stepping up as a sponsor of youth soccer, please contact us today!

Families: Download the SportsEngine app for team communications

In 2022, SFAAA transitioned from SportsSignUp Play to SportsEngine HQ. Every team has its own web page on our new site, which coaches and parents can use to stay connected and informed using team chat and email. We strongly encourage everyone to download the Apple or Android version of the app because it's the best way to message each other on practice and game days.

Seeking Volunteers

SFAAA has served children in the community for over 60 years thanks to the many, many parents and caregivers who volunteer to coach a youth soccer team or assist the association in other ways, big and small.

Parents and others who volunteer are supported and guided by SFAAA board members and other long-time volunteers. They also tend to have a lot of fun together!
