Toronto Azzurri 2017 Year in Review

As another year comes to an end and as we look forward to our 20th year as the NEW Toronto Azzurri Soccer Club.  I felt it appropriate to update our members on the programming currently being created and sustained.  I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your unconditional support through the twenty years. We’ve accomplished so much and with so much more to do.

When we opened the Azzurri LIUNA Clubhouse on April 29, 2014, we declared our Mission and declared our long-term commitment.

“to create and sustain sport, education and Arts programming for our community youth with a specific focus on our “At Risk” kids.  Over the past three years, we have hosted and/or executed the following programs and initiatives

  • Private Day School ( children ages 8-14)
  • Theatre Arts Group
