A Note from Coach Williams
It’s with great pleasure to announce that 22 of our senior class level 1 boys have committed to play collegiate soccer for the 2020 season. Not only does this show the commitment, dedication, and personal drive to achieve their personal best, but a drive to further their education and better themselves holistically. We are so very proud of each senior!
We understand the commitment level it takes to achieve your collegiate dream, the hours and hours of training, playing and studying is something that should be admired, you should all be very proud of your accomplishments to date. Understand that this is just the beginning of your journey, and we are truly excited to see where it takes you! My hope for you all is that you come back to the Club and share accomplishments with future NC Fusion players who can be inspired by your journey and hopefully follow in your footsteps.
NC Fusion offer the platform for players to be showcased to collegiate coaches from all over the country, nothing is more evident of this than the Development Academy Showcase where over 250 college coaches were in attendance over a 4 day event in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. This event is just one example of the platforms our club provides for it’s athletes. Because of this opportunity, I can say that 100% of our graduating Seniors from the Development Academy are attending colleges this coming Fall. To have all of our graduating seniors committed to colleges is a fantastic achievement and would not be possible without the help of some amazing people. To each coach, thank you, your role in supporting the players holistically has been unreal and we thank you for that. Our team Manager for our Development Academy U18/19, Chris Hales is a huge reason for this unbelievable achievement. Without his determination, persistence and countless hours emailing college coaches, I am certain this would not have happened, so thank you in abundance Mr. Hales!
To summarize, we want to thank every player, parent, team manager and coaches for helping these boys achieve their dreams! It has been an excellent year for our players and we can’t wait to see what you do at the next level!
