One League for Everyone (OLE) is a Redmond-based non-profit program under Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association. It provides financial assistance to low-income families served by LWYSA (Redmond and Kirkland) by covering all soccer fees, providing gently used soccer gear, and enabling families to attend practices with games. As part of this program OLE is extending its services to educate on health, nutrition, exercise, family skills such as parenting tips, internet safety tips, etc.
On Friday, January 25, 2013 OLE is hosting a Community Fitness Fair and Spring Soccer Registration from 6:00PM-8:00PM at Albert Einstein Elementary located at 18025 NE 116thStreet, Redmond, WA.

 The event is free to attend and free for companies to participate. Volunteers are assisting with registering families who qualify for the reduced soccer registration fees, into LWYSA Spring Soccer programs. Volunteers are continuously collecting and re-distributing gently used cleats, shin guards and apparel. Equipment donations can be dropped off at the LWYSA Office. For more information contact OLE at
Let me know if you have any questions. We are hoping to get the word out next week to promote participation. This is a great resource for low-income families to feel a part of the community and become more educated on healthier living.
