Our senior staff consists of USSF- and UEFA-licensed coaches, all of whom are former professional or college players. We love soccer, and enjoy working with young players!
Many programs attempt to teach skills, but fall short because of their teaching methods. We focus on the body mechanics involved with effective soccer movement - the movements seen on professional fields around the world. Our curriculum emphasizes improving balance and proprioception, developing comfort with various surfaces and on both sides of the body, and increasing technical speed.
Above all else, we do this by creating a fun and positive learning environment that encourages young players to explore their creativity and discover what makes soccer so fun and exciting.
We are offering two weeks of instruction and fun this summer at Stanley Quarter Park in New Britain, for players 8 to 16 years of age. Each week consists of five or 10 3-hour sessions, daily from 9 a.m. to noon or 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We expect to have a student-to-staff ratio of no more than 10:1. The curriculum will change from the first week to the second week, so players are welcome to register for both weeks without fear of repetition. The investment is $150 for each week or $250 for both weeks for the morning only sessions, or $250/$450 for the full-day sessions. Also, we are giving a referral discount - let another family know about our camp, and you get $25 off if their child signs up for either week or both!
For over a decade and a half, FSC has provided premier-level training and competition for talented athletes in greater New Britain, greater Middletown, central 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 eventually with as much or more exposure to college coaches than most teams in Connecticut. 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 Connecticut high schools and colleges, 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 skill 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!
