2019 Concord FC Spring Soccer Season

2019 Concord FC Spring Soccer Season

NCSA/Concord FC is excited for another TRAVEL soccer year.  Concord FC has been very busy building partnerships with SUNY Fredonia and the Dunkirk City School District.  We are happy to announce home games will include these two wonderful locations depending on the team.  We are still in the process of determining where each team will play.  We want to thank SUNY Fredonia and the Dunkirk City School District for trusting in us and letting our membership play there.  All our venues will offer a great experience as we host home games for the Buffalo & Western New York Junior Soccer League.  We also want to again thank the B&WNYJSL Board of Directors for granting us home games.  That decision reflects the dedication and professionalism our players, coaches, and parents displayed last year.  We thank you all as well!

A comprehensive review was conducted immediately following last year which included try-outs.  Taking a very deliberate approach, it was decided it was unnecessary to have a separate summer try-out date.  Instead of having a separate try-out date there will be a two-week trial period once the training begins.  We have updated the CFC Handbook to the following:

“The tryout process will be conducted by team coaches and may be with the assistance of the Technical Director and/or Director of Coaching, who will evaluate players based on several factors such as, but not limited to, ability, attendance, punctuality, attitude, effort, behavior, social skills, emotional control, physical maturity, and focus. The tryouts will be conducted during the first two weeks of Spring travel training to afford the greatest opportunity for as many players to attend as possible. All players must attend the tryout period. Provisions shall be made, when possible, to accommodate players who miss tryouts because of injury, illness, family emergencies, or other reasons acceptable to the CFC Travel Committee”

Concord FC is a competitive club and playing time and/or placement on a specific team is not guaranteed.  These decisions are made based on several factors by members of the Concord FC staff which are referenced above.  An athlete’s placement and/or playing time will be constantly evaluated and may change throughout the entire season.  These decisions are made in the best interest of the athlete and their development as a person and player.

The start date of the training season will be determined soon.  We are expecting to begin sometime in the middle of March.  We are requesting that ALL players interested in playing for a Concord FC team in 2019 complete a try-out registration as soon as possible at this link here.   At the conclusion of the try-out period, if the player has been selected by the Concord FC staff to play on a team, you will receive an invitation from the coach directing you to online registration.

As we’ve said before, it will always be our club's desire to find a place for every interested child to play competitive soccer if possible. You can be assured that the Concord FC staff working on this process care deeply about your child, their development, and your overall experience as a family with our club.
