As 2015 dawns we are gearing up for another busy year of soccer and community. We hope you will be a big part of our 25th year! Your membership and dues help keep your club running. Your dues allow us to pay for our insurance policy that is required for us to rent fields, those field rentals, equipment, our Pride booth and operating funds to take care of the up-front costs associated with the tournaments and events that we host.
Thanks to the hard work of our volunteer board and many, many other volunteers we are able to keep our dues at a very reasonable $50 for the year. In addition to allowing the club to operate, your membership gives you a discount or free soccer when it comes to things like our monthly Friday Night Lights pickup, Turkey Bowl, pre-season league team scrimmages, and our Summer of Freedom league registration.
Please renew your membership for 2015 today! As a special thank you, all 2015 members will receive a 25th anniversary FTSC scarf!
We always welcome your ideas on how to improve your club and the sorts of things you would like to see us doing that we might not be doing already.
