Candidate Profiles 2023 Election

Hagop Avedissian

I have been an active member of the Burke Athletic Club since 2008.  My three children been part of the youth soccer program where they made a lot of friends and enjoyed playing soccer. Watching them play I wanted the same fun for the club’s parents and coaches. I started the adult mens’ league program and became it’s commissioner. In few seasons the adult league grew from 6 teams to 24 teams.  A one division league expanded to three divisions to accommodate the increasing number of teams and the different player levels of soccer. Through my years of volunteering in the club I assisted the coaches and also coached some of youth teams. 

For the past  6 years I have been serving as board member and recently became the clubs vice president. I would like to be nominated again this year to continue to help the club’s growth.
