General Information

 

The FFC Co-Ed U12 Soccer Fall Clinic is soccer for youth aged 10-11 in the Stark area. This league is an aide in the progression of soccer skills developed previously. In each of our soccer leagues, we seek to teach our players the game of soccer in an age appropriate, healthy and encouraging environment.  We believe that there is such a thing as ‘healthy competition.’

 

Our Spring League begins in April and goes through Mid June. There will be a short devotional time where we share biblical principles with the players and encourage them to pursue a life with Christ every week. The season will conclude with a league celebration that includes food, fun, participation awards, and league champion awards.
