Schell Alexander

Through systems and operations development for Asheville Buncombe Youth Soccer Association (ABYSA) Schell Alexander oversees registration for over 5,000 soccer players each year in Buncombe County. She has created processes that allow parents to easily and systematically enroll their children in programs which in turn, empower our children with easy access to the game of soccer and a healthier lifestyle. Schell is has a thorough understanding of the ABYSA/HFC organization with her experience in coaching, administration, and family aspects of soccer.

Schell started the Soccer Angels program where anonymous donors can sponsor players in the community that would not be able to participate otherwise. She also set up the organizational, bookkeeping, and employment structure for the organization. She participated in the formation of Asheville Buncombe Recreational Sports Commission (ABRSC) and has contributed to sound fiscal practices while helping to grow and maintain the second largest soccer organization in the state. Schell’s strength, knowledge and compassion have given her “team mom” stature within the organization.
