A Super Team

The FBS-FC is a Miami’s club with a clear vision about soccer, family, and its purpose as a sporting organization. With a great team of professional coaches, the Elite program is a pilot project whose purpose is to start an Academy with more competitive teams. It is a high-level team, which has delivered its first results by reaching the finals at the recent “State Cup 2016”.

This team that started over a month ago, will participate in different tournaments and travel more than other teams. “The kids on this team know that they have a greater commitment than the others”. Coach Cristian Morales says. “At our Academy all the teams get standard training; instead, the Elite Team trains four times a week, rests on Friday, and plays a tournament on the weekend. Definitively, it is a greater commitment.” Cristian also considers the parent’s support is very important because time is needed for training and to meet the schedules.
