Canton/Cleveland United named an OYSAN ‘Top Club’ and ‘Top Developmental Club’ at Ohio North Awards Banquet

Canton/Cleveland United named an OYSAN ‘Top Club’ and ‘Top Developmental Club’ at Ohio North Awards Banquet

            At the annual Ohio North awards banquet, United was recognized with multiple awards for this past year’s accomplishments. Canton United Director Damien Marchione, and Cleveland United Director Marko Raduka were in attendance to accept the awards representing the United organization.

For the ‘Top Club’ recognition, United teams (both Cleveland and Canton) finished in the top 3 clubs in both girls and boys in overall points at the State Cup tournament. United was the ONLY club that finished in the top 3 in points for boys AND girls.

United was also honored with a ‘Top Developmental Club’ award in recognition of the success of its younger teams. Club Director Damien Marchione said “It is a major honor to receive a developmental award from the state. Our club has worked very hard at developing our younger players in the proper way, and to be recognized by Ohio North as one of the best in youth development is a great honor for our coaches, parents, and players.”

Only 3 clubs for boys and 2 clubs for girls were bestowed the ‘Top Developmental Club’ honors. Marchione went on to say, “I think it’s a great thing for a club from Stark County to be recognized at the state level for soccer development. One of the goals with creating Canton United was providing the highest quality training in an area that previously only had a travel soccer background, and I think we have officially changed the dialogue with what is possible.”

Marko Raduka also accepted an award in recognition of the Cleveland United girls winning the U17 National Championship in 2013 and finishing as National Runners-Up in 2014.

Canton United will have 12 teams competing this year in the State Cup tournament including its United Elite teams.
