We take pride in educating and training players to a highly-skilled competitive level in a positive environment. The club promotes sportsmanship, integrity, leadership, self-discipline, and character development by stressing the technical, tactical, physical and mental components of the game.
We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect and our program, aided by the WYSL Sportsmanship Program, is designed to instill good sportsmanship and team spirit.
Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment for the players and leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. We believe that all players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team.
Teams are created based on skill and entered/seeded in the appropriate division.
Tryouts held each spring, are open to all. FC Somers is committed to accommodating players with the ability, skills, commitment and attitude to participate in travel soccer. On the occasion that FC Somers is unable to add a player to the travel roster, additional player development opportunities will be made available.
In order to accomplish our philosophy, the club has placed great emphasis on the following:
- Long term development of all players
- Opportunity to participate at all levels of play including, local, regional and national travel and the premier level
- Age appropriate year round training program directed by certified & licensed coaches
- Ongoing soccer education for our coaching staff
