LOUISVILLE, Ky. — West Louisville Soccer was back on the field at Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Center on Sunday.

This is the team’s third game in its first-ever spring season.

The team was started by circuit judge Brian Edwards, Lou City player George Davis and community organizer Mark Harris in the Fall of 2023.

The club addresses the lack of organized sports in the area for children.

Boys and girls have the chance to learn the game of soccer and how to work as a team.

“I always say that our emphasis is not placed on how good of a soccer player you are but rather what type of person you are and what type of teammate you are,” said Co-Founder George Davis. “Being a good person and having strong character is really the aim of what we’re trying to do here.”

Since the West Louisville Soccer Club began it has grown to include more than 300 boys and girls
