Thursday Community Awareness Post:
Founded in Philadelphia in 1949, the Ukrainian American Sport Center (“UASC” or “Tryzub”, as it is known in Ukrainian) consists of over 600 ethnically and culturally diverse member families and is dedicated exclusively to charitable work: sport, youth and adult development, charitable and humanitarian activities, fraternity, society, and cultural, artistic and ethnic heritage pursuits. UASC is home to the Ukrainian Nationals soccer club, which has a sports program consisting of nearly 40 youth soccer teams, a soccer academy to accommodate all youngsters, a men’s and a women’s U.S. Amateur Soccer Association Majors Division team, a swim club, an archery team and a golf club. UASC also fosters and promotes the growth of folk art forms and other ethnic cultural traditions by regularly organizing and supporting Ukrainian folk and cultural programming both on its facilities and throughout the community with a particular emphasis on ethnic folk art, dance, music, song and cultural pursuits.
