Boys and Girls U11 to U19

About Our Most Competitive Program

FCS Premier is designed for players seeking the next level in skill development. Premier teams are for U11 to U19 players who want more rigorous training and more competitive league and tournament play.  Players are selected at Premier tryouts which are held before FC Storm select tryouts.  They are chosen based on skill level, growth potential, commitment, and physical and mental readiness for more rigorous training.

Premier teams train 3 nights a week in the fall and spring. Winter training begins in early November and may include indoor futsal and outdoor training on turf fields. FCS Premier teams will play in competitive regional and state leagues.  All coaches are specially chosen for their ability to train more advanced players.  They are assisted by our staff of professional trainers.

The Premier program is under the direction of Anthony Doherty, Sr. Director of Coaching.  Anthony trains each Premier team weekly.

Players interested in joining FCS Premier can visit the tryouts page to view tryout dates and times.
