(Jan. 15, 2014) – Football Club of Virginia (FCV) has announced an alliance with Ashburn Soccer Club to create one of the premiere soccer clubs in Northern Virginia. Ashburn Soccer Club will become FCV Ashburn and will bring with them their successful girls and boys academy travel program, as well as, their recreation program. FCV’s partnership with Annandale Soccer Club and newly formed alliance with Ashburn aims to make FC Virginia the destination club for Elite soccer players in Northern Virginia. Players will have a path to reach the highest levels of soccer through their ECNL and EDP programs.
“I am very excited about our new partnerships; it is something we have been working on for the last couple of years,” said Terry Foley, President of FC Virginia. “This partnership allows for a bigger pool of players to be developed and will allow FC Virginia greater access to talented players. We are looking to build a bright future for young players in the Northern Virginia area and beyond. With the involved clubs we will finally be able to work together for the good of the players while sharing resources and knowledge to build the best development platform for every athlete.”
FCV Ashburn is striving for excellence at all age levels of soccer, driving them to focus on a U7-U8 crossover program for the pre-travel player. The players at these ages will be provided professional training and the ability to compete with other soccer clubs in the area on top quality fields. This crossover program is only one part of the restructured and growing recreation program for FCV Ashburn which will include girls and boys starting at age U3.
The primary turf practice field for FCV and FCV Ashburn teams will be the recently completed Evergreen SportsPlex. This new home, along with the FCV Ashburn Bermuda fields at Bles Park will provide an incredible backdrop for the highest level of technical training in the area.
Recreational soccer registration for FCV Ashburn will begin January 15, 2014 at www.fcvashburn.com.
