BUILD A SOLID FOUNDATION
A premier Youth Soccer Program in Mid-Ohio built upon Christian Values.
FOUNDATION SOCCER CLUB
Frequently Asked Questions??
Foundation Soccer Club is a premier youth soccer program in Mid-Ohio and playing in the Ohio North State League (ohionorthsoccer.org). We are founded on Christian principles and strive to teach excellent soccer in a specifically Christian context. We want to be more than just a "club"; we want to be a soccer "family." Many clubs teach good sportsmanship, respect for the game and others, giving your very best effort, and similar lessons. We agree with all these teachings. But why do we teach these things? What is the foundation upon which these attitudes and character traits are built? At FSC, we have an unshakable foundation for teaching these life lessons that go far beyond the soccer pitch. We welcome you to join us for soccer and for life.
“These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock." - Matthew 7:24-25 (Message)
"Because of God’s grace to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ." - 1 Corinthians 3:10-11 (NLT)
How often are practices and games?
Practices are up to your coach but will typically be 2-3 times a week. U14 and under have an 8-game season, 4 home and 4 away. U15 and above have a 6-game season in the spring. Because of traveling, games are usually scheduled on weekends. We make every effort to not schedule games on Sunday morning. There are instances, generally tournaments, where we have no control over schedules and this cannot be avoided.
Will we have to travel for games?
Yes. Foundation Soccer Club is a part of Ohio North Youth Soccer. We play teams across northern Ohio, including Cleveland, Toledo, Youngstown, Akron, Canton, and Mansfield. Half the games are home and half are away. Coaches may try to schedule nearby away games in the same day to reduce travel, though that may not be possible in some seasons.
Will we have to stay overnight?
There is not a need to stay overnight for games. However, you may want to stay overnight for tournaments. The ones we attend are all over Ohio so an overnight stay may be needed if you don't want to travel each day. The tournaments are usually Saturday and Sunday. They will be scheduled by the coach.
Isthere a team for my child?
Yes, if we have enough players who tryout to allow us to create a new team. It is our prayer that every athlete who has the ability and desire will have a Foundation team to play on.
What school does my child have to attend to play for FSC?
We have players who attend many schools in the Richland, Ashland, Crawford, Knox, and Morrow county area. Students from any school can play for Foundation. Students from any school are invited to try out for our Foundation teams. We strive to provide every player with an excellent soccer experience, and to raise the level of play for the entire region!
