FFC was created in response to the lack of club soccer opportunities in Montcalm and Ionia Counties. Our players are forced to either play only High School soccer during a single season each year or travel very long distances to be part of a club outside of their community. More often, however, we lose those athletes to other sports because the opportunities for those sports in the local area are more convenient, and more affordable. Soccer will never grow in this area when it is fighting such an uphill battle.
FFC's goal is to provide a reasonably priced club option that is local, affordable, and community supported. We don't believe it is necessary to lose our kids to other communities, and we don't feel that our kids should have to choose their athletic options based on cost. By partnering with the community, FFC (both the FFC Club and the Academy program) can help to grow and promote soccer in Montcalm and Ionia Counties.
