About Us

The Freedom Soccer Club was founded in August 2003. The Freedom Soccer Club is a professionally coached select club. Teams participate in the Mid Ohio Select Soccer League (MOSSL), Buckeye Premier League (BPL), Ohio South State League (OSSL), and in the Midwest Regional League (MRL).

The club is directed by Ian Peña, a USSF ‘A’ licensed coach and OSYSA 2006 Girls’ Coach Of The Year. All Freedom coaches are licensed and have varied coaching (College, HS, ODP etc) and playing experiences (international, college, semi-professional) . More specific information on our coaching staff can be found on the Coaching Staff link.  Our goalkeepers are instructed by an experienced, licensed, specialized goalkeeper coach.

In 2010, the Freedom U14 and U15 teams participated in the US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup. Both teams were State and Regional Champions. The U14 team finished as National Semi-Finalist and the U15 team was crowned National Champions. In 2015 the Freedom U12 team competed in US Youth Soccer Ohio South State Cup and finished as State Cup Champions.
These accomplishments are great. But they could not have been possible without deliberate, purposeful and knowledgeable focus.
The Freedom Soccer Club places emphasis on the following aspects of player development:
  • Having fun while being challenged in a learning environment
  • Individual technical mastery
  • Technical competence in game situations
  • Developing independent thinkers
  • Promoting creativity and teamwork
  • Playing with confidence while demonstrating good sporting behavior
  • Taking ownership of individual development as a soccer player and a person
  • Developing a passion for the game while pursuing excellence
This excellence is not only nurtured on the soccer field but is promoted in the classroom. Our alums go on to continue their education and play soccer in division I, II and III colleges and universities.
If you are looking for a club where skills are nurtured and player development is the focus, then the
Freedom Soccer Club is the club for you!
