The North Coast Soaring Association proudly presents the 10th annual

North Coast Glider Games 2022 edition.

April 28, 29, 30 and May 1, 2022

It’s time to congregate on the slopes of Northeast Ohio! Heavy winds or light, there are always ways to get in the air and have great fun. The area around City View is being developed so there may be more amenities available for the games this year. The indoor facilities and the club field are exceptional and ready to be enjoyed.
