Anaheim Bolts Team up with YMCA
ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Bolts and the Santa Ana Family YMCA announced today the formation of a new partnership that will see several community-based events co-hosted by the Bolts and YMCA, such as men's and women's amateur indoor soccer tournaments throughout the year. In addition one of the Bolts' home games of 2012-13 will be chosen as YMCA Night, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit YMCA, and the Santa Ana Family YMCA has been named an official indoor soccer facility of the Bolts.
With its focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, YMCA serves Orange County through six Health & Wellness centers and over 50 Afterschool Program centers. All of the organization's programs, which include everything from youth sports and group exercise classes to parent/child programs and community services, promote values of respect, responsibility, honesty and caring.
The Bolts' partnership with YMCA reflects the club's commitment to furthering its community outreach as a means of accomplishing continued growth and supporting community-focused organizations.
"We couldn't be more excited about partnering with YMCA and supporting such a great organization that provides so many positive programs for the community at large," said Anaheim Bolts Managing Partner and Head Coach, Bernie Lilavois. "We are continuing to spread the word about the Bolts throughout Orange County and this partnership will help us reach a whole new, dynamic fan base."
The excitement was shared by Luis Carrido, Sports Director for the Santa Ana Family YMCA.
"We look forward to our new partnership with the Anaheim Bolts," Carrido offered. "With our new indoor soccer complex here at Santa Ana Family YMCA and the fact that our soccer leagues for both youth and adults have grown at such a rapid pace, this partnership is a perfect fit for us. We also are excited and looking forward to the first ever YMCA Night with the Bolts this season and appreciate their efforts in raising some funds for our great programs."
The Bolts' big PASL season opener against expansion franchise Sacramento Surge is on November 2nd at 7 p.m. PT .
