About us

Our Mission

FC Athletico is a youth soccer club located in Mooresville North Carolina that focuses on developing fundamental youth soccer skills from a very early age. We offer programs for players of all ages, beginning at 4 years old.

At FC Athletico, we are about creating well rounded individuals, both on and off the field. You would be hard pressed to find another activity that impacts a person on so many levels than youth sports. Sports create so many teachable opportunities that allow participants to develop such valuable skills as teamwork, discipline, perseverance (pushing ones self) and good sportsmanship. When done correctly, youth athletic programs can have a significant impact on who that child will become as an adult.
