In an effort to enhance and expand the youth sports experience in the City of Berea, Mayor Kleem created the Berea Youth Sports Commission in 2014.
It is the mission of the Berea Youth Sports Commission to build upon existing youth sports programs and activities to enhance the athletic experience for our youth, their families and the entire community. It is our primary goal to strengthen the community bonds through youth sports programs and activities that embrace and help develop future Berea-Midpark Titans’ players.
