Fast-paced soccer is capturing the interest of area Strand youth in a big way! Families from across our region are participating in record numbers in the largest youth sport in the world. In 2006, a much needed effort to bring our community in line with the programs offered in other regions of our state, local soccer organizations pooled resources and began addressing the long term needs of our region. The unified club, Coast Futbol Alliance or Coast FA, now draws from the best talent in our area to offer an all-inclusive soccer program.
With top-flight staff coaching and dedicated volunteers, the Coast FA McDonald’s Recreation League offers youth of all skill levels a great experience in Spring and Fall. The Player Development Center (PDC) is in place year round for players who desire to improve skill beyond recreational; and, for our older youth seeking to play in high school and college, we offer Select and Challenge opportunities.
Hence, all participants have the opportunity to realize their full potential. Players, parents, school athletics and the community are the beneficiaries of a system that addresses the needs of all of its participants, ages 4 to 18.
The mission is to grow youth soccer in communities throughout our regional area and promote county-wide league competition. We are also busy developing regional host tournament events that will strengthen the club and provide a boost to our local economy.
Coast FA is a non-profit organization. We never let the “cost to play” alienate those who have the “desire to play”. Our Scholarship Program is in place for economically disadvantaged youth throughout the region. Program expenses include field leases, uniforms, staff coaching, field maintenance, sanitation, turf care, equipment and lights. And, while player fees make up a portion of our revenue, programs of this quality can only be delivered with broad community support.
We are hoping that you will join us as a Coast FA Partner. Your business will enjoy advertising on our Partner Signage Board at field complexes, promoting your commitment to the many hundreds of families that frequent the fields each week. As our tournament program develops, your outreach will include hundreds of visiting families from across a three-state region.
Other sponsorship opportunities are available as well. We look forward to speaking to you about partnering with Coast FA in support of our area youth.
