The sun was shining and the smiles were as wide as ever despite the Arctic temperatures here at the Fox Den. The only thing that truly mattered was the excitement all the participants had who joined us on Saturday for the second round of FSA PREMIER tryouts. In case you haven't heard, Christian Fuchs, Founder and President of Fox Soccer Academy, recently announced the formation of FSA PREMIER which will encompass travel soccer teams for boys and girls ages U8-U18 (2002-2012). The process of forming teams is in full swing and we couldn't be more proud to be the home venue for the entire Fox Soccer Academy family.
Throughout the day, boys and girls were split into groups looking to impress the FSA coaching staff and compete against their peers. We saw a ton of talent and were extremely pleased with how professional the sessions were being run. The attendees were asked to test their skills ranging from passing, to communication, to shooting.
At the end of each tryout, our very own Speed & Agility trainer, Coach Crown, made sure each and every player received a proper post-workout routine including stretches and balancing. From start to finish, it was evident how the professionalism FSA is bringing to the table.
Not only were we happy to see the over 200 participants and families, but we were also so delighted to have Christian join us for the day. He was on International Break with Leicester City FC so it was perfect timing for Christian to speak to all the hopeful Foxes, but also to the parents of those trying out. As the young players were putting in the time on the field, Christian presented his vision and goal of the entire FSA PREMIER academy structure to the families in attendance. It is quite clear that he wants to create an elite club system so help benefit the future of soccer here in the Hudson Valley and beyond.
We hope everyone had a wonderful day at HSC this past weekend and hope to see you soon! All of the FSA PREMIER tryouts are FREE and the next session is Saturday, Dec. 14. To learn more and register, click here!
