The FSC Classic program is a competitive level of play and therefore by USYS and USSF standards, tryouts are conducted to form the teams. Players that are interested in playing competitive soccer must attend tryouts that are held each May at the Jordan Soccer Complex.
Season and Training
The Classic season varies depending on the age group: 15U-19U girls compete July-November, 15U-19U boys compete January-May, and 11U-14U boys and girls compete August-November and January-May (fall and spring seasons). If chosen for a team, the player is expected to play the entire season.
Training is for 1 1/2 hours twice a week during the playing season. Training is held at the Jordan Soccer Complex.
Games, Tournaments, and Travel
Games are typically played on the weekends, however, it is not uncommon for Classic teams to have a game during the week on occasion. Home games are played at the Jordan Soccer Complex. Teams will travel to the away games. A teams level of play will determine their travel. Division 1 and 2 games are played within the Eastern Region of NC. Travel can range 1-2 hours for some of the games. The Premier level plays across the state of NC and you could possibly travel 3-4 hours to a game. Region III games are played in the southern region of the United States (NC, SC, GA, and FL).
The Classic teams will participate in several tournaments during the season. Tournaments usually require overnight lodging.
Development is accomplished through player commitment to the team and training. Classic coaches are encouraged to utilize players in competition based on the player's commitment and role on the team. Once players are selected for a team, players are expected to fulfill their commitment to themselves, to their team and to FSC for the duration of the year.
