As we work our way into summer, here are some important tips to proactively protect our children from heat related illness.

Last night FSC gave our “Graduating” coaches a huge thank-you from the club. Erik Johnson and Mark Milewski both coached their kids (Erik – Grace and Mark – Owen) from u8 to u18 and both are great examples of what the Freedom model of coaching looks like. Erik achieved a top-10 gotsoccer ranking and will be sending 4 players to play soccer in college, one to play lax, and one to swim. This is what Freedom Soccer Club is all about and exemplifies the FSC way.
