AC Sandhills Cleat Closet Opens Jan. 28th

AC Sandhills Cleat Closet “The soccer environment means the absolute world to me. The incredible people I have been so fortunate to meet and the memories I have made over the years have shaped me into the person I am today, and I truly cannot imagine where I would be if I were a stranger to the AC Sandhills family. Having the opportunity to build this program from the ground up, in order to extend this privilege of playing soccer to others, has been extremely gratifying and humbling. Being a part of this soccer community is truly like no other, and that is exactly what drove me to initiate this program. My personal goal for this closet is to allow anyone, regardless of finances, to be part of such an incredible environment as an athlete, a teammate and a friend.” - Danielle Richmond, AC Sandhills player of 11 years

WHAT: AC Sandhills’ “Cleat Closet” was officially founded in 2019 by Danielle and the AC
Sandhills staff. It is located in the ACS office at 110 Commerce Avenue in Southern Pines. We
accept ALL gently used cleats, shin guards, goalie gloves, or practice clothes your child has
outgrown or no longer needs. Please, take two minutes to wipe the dirt off of your cleats. We
will take care of the rest.

PURPOSE: This closet is entirely based on the premise of serving our soccer community; all
cleats will be sold at a small price of 20 dollars, which will go directly to AC Sandhills’
Scholarship Fund to grant more players the opportunity to play soccer. Shin guards are also for
sale. Goalie equipment and warm-up gear is available for anyone in need, free of charge.

HOW TO DONATE: Donations are accepted at the ACS office anytime during office hours.
The office is open Monday - Friday, 10am - 5pm daily.

HOW TO PURCHASE CLEATS: Announcements for official sale dates and times will be
issued when cleats and other equipment are being sold or offered. If there is not an official sale
date but you would like to purchase a pair of cleats or other equipment from the closet, please
contact the ACS office at 910-944-9042 and ask for Kari.
