After the Memorial Weekend dust settled, FCNova teams came out with some great results over the weekend and a "future is bright" outlook. Even with no representation via the ECNL teams at U15, U16, U17 and U18 girls age groups due to Elite Clubs National League schedule and showcase in New Jersey, FCNova posted an impressive showing in Boise over the IYSA State Cup Weekend.
"The representation was so refreshing compared to 2013, when we only had 1 team in State Cup due to a club decision to not attend with no teams looking to attend Far West Regionals in Hawaii due to cost. Being fiscally responsible is a high priority of our board and staff to our members!" stated Director of Coaching, Eric Simmonsen. Eric continued with, "I am extremely proud of all the age groups and genders this weekend. Yet, also excited for 2015 as we will have representation at the 2015 State Cup at a full capacity, including our ECNL age teams. We had some age groups where our boys are really showing well and pushing the envelope with the U13 Boys losing on an own goal in the final seconds of the Championship, the U18 Boys losing in the final in a great game and U17 Boys losing a close match in the semifinal. We also had some validity to our structure as our U15G, U14G and U13G showed the future depth and fact that a club/program at the highest levels, like ours, can facilitate two very competitve teams."
The board of directors and staff would like to congratulate all the FCNova teams on the 2013-2014 cycle of accomplishments.
