•    What is premier soccer?

Premier soccer offers advanced players the opportunity to train with other strong players, to receive high level coaching, and to compete against the best opposition. In general, the kids who participate at the premier level are dedicated to improving themselves and making soccer a priority.

•    What is FSC?

Foundation SC was formed by three ex-professional players in 1997 with just a handful of boys on two indoor teams. We develop and support premier teams at all age levels, provide training to individuals and teams, and facilitate the growth of soccer in this country. There are currently 25 FSC boys and girls teams competing at the premier and premier developmental level. Our head coaches are all former players at either the professional or college level, most are current or former college or high school coaches, and our assistant coaches are current or recent college players who developed their skills in the FSC program.

For nearly two decades, FSC has provided premier-level training and competition for talented athletes in greater New Britain, greater Middletown, central Connecticut, eastern Connecticut, and beyond. We have always preferred to include young players with the potential for growth, rather than exclude kids who want to play, as many clubs do for the sole objective of “winning now”.  Our coaches create a fun and positive learning environment for young players, focusing on composure, confidence, and creativity. As our teams advance, we provide them with greater competitive challenges and exposure to college coaches. Regardless of each individual’s ambitions as a player, we foster a love for soccer that lasts far beyond his or her time with us – our players stay in the game! FSC alumni are coaching at high schools and colleges around New England and beyond, and some have even gone on to play in MLS or other pro leagues.

 

Despite the alarming trend toward overtly physical play in Connecticut youth and high school soccer, FSC continues its mission to teach skillful and constructive play. We are willing to sacrifice victories at young age groups in exchange for the advancement of that agenda, and every player and parent who comes through our program learns to appreciate it. Young players subjected to aggressive play and constant pressure to win by their parents and coaches are unlikely to stick with soccer, let alone succeed in the long run. We strike a balance between a nurturing environment for our players’ technical and personal growth, and the competitive atmosphere required to push them to the limits of their potential. Above all else, our style of play is suited to the intelligent, creative player. Our coaching staff is largely from South America and Spain, homes of the most beautiful soccer in the world, and that is our primary philosophical influence. We would rather encourage players to experiment with the ball, connect short passes to escape pressure, and create meaningful offense, instead of kicking long balls and hoping for the best. It takes patience, but over the course of time, our method produces more sophisticated players, more attractive soccer, and ultimately, victory!

 

•    Isn’t premier soccer expensive?

In general, premier soccer does cost more than rec or travel soccer. Part of that is simply because it’s almost a full-year commitment, so the expense of two outdoor seasons (Fall + Spring) is combined with the cost of league entry and field rental during the winter indoor seasons. On top of all that, our teams compete in tournaments around New England and New York, which adds some cost, but usually only our older teams attend tournaments that require hotel stays. FSC has always been one of the least costly premier clubs in Connecticut, and we always try to make participation as affordable as possible for our youngest teams. In 19 years, no kid has ever been turned away from our Club for financial reasons!
