Wenatchee FC is pleased to announce the launch of a new Elite High School Girls Soccer Program. This NEW program targets players born in 2004, 2005 and 2006 who want an enhanced soccer experience. The goal of this program is to provide the girls with a rigorous training program that will prepare them to compete during their high school soccer seasons, and if they are interested, give them the tools to be successful in the competitive college recruiting process.
In addition, the Wenatchee FC 04-06 Elite Team will participate in selected college showcase tournaments to provide each player with access to college scouts from the best programs. WFC will also provide college-level soccer education classes for those girls who are interested in continuing their soccer journey beyond high school and into the college ranks.
For us to be able to deliver on these goals we feel that it's important to have the best and most professional coaching staff that the Wenatchee Valley has to offer. Therefore we are delighted to announce that WFC Coach Anton McCourtie will be leading this team starting at Try-outs in May 2021. Coach McCourtie has his Advanced National coaches license and has had an amazingly success record as the 2003 WFC boys coach where his team has had multiple trips to National playoffs and taken first place at many of the same college showcase tournaments mentioned above. In addition to Coach McCourtie, the WFC Director of Coaching Neil Oyston will also be directly involved in the implementation of this program and will assist the team if and when needed.
In closing the WFC 04-06 Elite team goal is player development and preparing young women for the next level of soccer. So mark your calendars and join us on May 19th at Foothills MS for try outs where we aim to elevate the level of play for girls soccer in the valley.
Stay tuned for more information!
