As we enter the holiday season and put a great big exclamation point on 2019, we want to highlight a few specific accomplishments from this fall. FC Athletico teams continue to compete at the highest level among some of the state’s toughest competitors. As always, we will compete at the highest level while learning from our mistakes and seeking to improve our skills with every opportunity given.
Back in August at the Appalachian Classic in Boone, North Carolina, FC Athletico teams cleaned house! Our U12 Milan and U13 PSG teams went undefeated while our Madrid and Lyon teams also won all of their games, crowning them the champions of this highly competitive soccer tournament.
In September, our Porto boys claimed the championship in the Charlotte Independence Soccer Club tournament.
At the Columbus Day Shootout in Burlington, North Carolina, Dortmond took the top honors with both Milan and Lyon making it to the finals.
Also in October, FC Athletico teams cleaned up with both Juventus and Bayern winning all of their games while Milan and PSG won both of their finals, crowning them the champions of the CSA Carolina Shootout!
In November, FC Athletico girls teams dominate the VisitRaleigh.com Junior Showcase with Milan taking the Championship and Lyon finishing as the runner up.
The following weekend, FC Athletico boys competed at the same tournament with Dortmund being crowned Champions of the top division in their age group.
2019 has been an incredible year for our players, the program as well as our coaching staff. We have some exciting things in store for 2020 and look forward to continuing to provide a top notch soccer program that develops the whole player, both on and off the field, while competing at the highest level. We thank you players and especially you parents for your continuous support of this program!
