FC NOVA U12 Boy gets call up to Timbers U12 Generation adidas Cup event
Way to GO Idaho!!! Congrats Colton...looking forward to seeing you continue the journey!
Exciting times for Idaho with last years announcement of the Timbers being awarded Idaho as a homegrown territory. In just a little under a year the Timbers/Thorns have alligned with Idaho Youth Soccer on the Olympic Development Program front as part of their programming/identification model.
FC Nova U12 boy (pictured here), Colton Crawford is one example of "Opportunity Looks A Lot Like Hard Work!"
In an ODP program summary email the following was highlighted as offerings and oportunities from the 2015-2016 cycle:
IYSA Technical Director, Skyler Bell stated, "We also had a great first year with the Timbers/Thorns affiliation. The Timbers brought in 15 players from various age groups to trial with the Timbers Academy teams, and one was invited to compete with the Timbers at the Generation Adidas Cup in Dallas! These players received high praise from the Timbers, and their development will continue to be tracked through the ODP program. But the Timbers/Thorns will continue to hunt for the next great Idaho player! Going through a full cycle with the Timbers as partners has been a great learning experience. The Timbers/Thorns' footprint in Idaho ODP is only going to grow!"
The player mentioned above was none other than U12 FCN Boys...Colton Crawford!!! Way to go Colton and we look for so much from you in the future buddy!!!
As the newest adidas premier partner in Idaho, FCNova are very proud of this and all of our kid's accomplishments. Just an example of the support via adidas as a brand partner and example of programs mentioned at our Annual General Meeting such as the Generation adidas International program.
NOT ONE...BUT TWO!

2015 All State and All Conference Award Selections
FCNova, Les Bois, Centennial and now Santa Clara Alum drafted #11 overall by the Chicago Red Stars of the NWSL!!!
Sofia Huerta Taken 11th Overall in NWSL Draft
Meridian, Idaho – Coming off her second straight All-American nod and a co-WCC Player of the Year award, Sofia Huerta of Santa Clara women's soccer was taken with the second pick of the second round (11th overall) in the National Women's Soccer League Draft by the Chicago Red Stars on Friday.
Sofia also joins FC Nova (Boise Capital/Les Bois) Alum and current Associate Women's Head Coach at the University of San Francisco; Maite Zabala as female alumni whom have gained opportunity within the highest levels. To our account, becoming only the second women from Idaho to gain an opportunity to play in the top women's professional league. Zabala played in the then named WUSA starting for the Atlanta Beat, Philadelphia Charge and Carolina Courage.
Huerta was second in the West Coast Conference with 17 goals and 37 points this past fall. She attempted 94 shots and 49 on goal while scoring a WCC-best six game-winners. She accounted for over 50% of the Broncos goals this year. This is the 10th time a Bronco as won WCC Player of the Year. Gaining experience with both the US Soccer Youth Regional and National teams, and most recently with the Mexican National Teams, there is talk of Sofia gaining ground and opportunities with the US Women's National Team through her performances.
Beyond the FC Nova family; Boise, Meridian and Idaho are very proud of Sofia and all her dedication to taking advantage of her opportunities. She has proven over her short time, that "opportunity looks alot like hard work" as a multiple sport student-athlete. Sofia continues to hold local, State, Regional and National accolades in swimming, track, basketball and soccer at all levels prior to her collegiate and future professional career. We know she'll continue to make her mark and establish herself on future "halls of fame"!
WAY TO GO IDAHO! WAY TO GO SOFIA!
You believe, we believe and now so many youth coming up can believe in dreams through had work!
