And, within the country, soccer is the second most popular sport for youth, trailing only behind basketball.

Silver FC offers free training and a 33-66% off of team fees for those that qualify for free or reduced school lunch. 

We also offer scholarships and payment plants if your family is experiencing a hardship.

Level of difficulty

Our goal is to train players and field teams for select level play and beyond, but all players start somewhere. Silver FC's training program will help a new player to build skills that will allow them play at the select level within one year.

We offer many other game opportunities for players that are improving their skills; including seasonal weekly game play, Fall and Winter indoor leagues, and internally run developmental leagues.
