What is Clermont FC’s philosophy?

 Our mission is to serve our community and families at the highest level possible. As the children grow within our program, they and their families develop lasting friendships that strengthen our community. We pride ourselves in developing future leaders through a safe, fun and competitive team-training environment.

We will never make “false promises” of college scholarships and “bait and switch” team placements. For us, it is a passion, not a business.

If a child exceeds the level of our highest team for the appropriate age, we have and will continue to refer the family to a club that can facilitate that child’s level of play.

Currently, there are several “former” CFC players that are part of Orlando City’s Academy program, one of whom just signed a professional contract with OC.

 

Why do you conduct Player Evaluations?

At CFC, we attempt to place every athlete on a team based on their technical and tactical abilitiesWe use these sessions as an opportunity to allow new players to help us continue to build our successful program. We use the evaluation system to ensure that no player is placed in a position that will hinder his/her development. Our aim is to develop players by building teams at various skill levels.

 

Can I play up in age?

Players may have the ability to “play up” with older players, if deemed appropriate by the CFC Staff.  CFC will adhere to the US Soccer and Florida Youth Soccer guidelines on playing up.  In some cases, the CFC Staff may approve “playing up” to compete in a more appropriate environment based on their skill level.  

 

What session I should attend?

Please attend the session based on your year of birth.

 

What should I bring to the Evaluations?

Each player should be prepared with cleats, shin guards, and plenty of water.

 

What if I cannot attend any of the dates?

If you are not able to attend any of the sessions, please email us: [email protected]. One of our Directors will contact you to arrange an evaluation and placement on a team.

 

What if it rains?

If applicable, information will be communicated via email and posted on our website.

 

Will I be required to pay a non-refundable deposit to secure my spot on a team?

We do not charge families any type of deposit to secure a spot with the club

 

When will practice and games start up?

Practices will commence in late July/early August. Games will begin in August or September depending on your age/team.

 

Where will I practice and play games?

Practices take place at fields within Clermont and games will be at Hancock Park.

 

Are your coaches compensated?

Yes, we issue a stipend to handle a coach’s expenses for travel and their valuable time. Our licensed parent coaches receive complimentary registration in place of a stipend. We, unlike other clubs, DO NOT charge any additional monthly fees. The fees below are the total for the full year (Fall and Spring). In fact, CFC awards each team up to $500 toward entry into a tournament.

 

Are your coaches licensed? **

Yes, CFC coaches are licensed through USSF (United States Soccer Federation) or USCA (United Soccer Coaches of America) or both.

 **Note - clubs will try to justify their fees based on the coach’s “level” of licensing. A few of the most successful coaches we have encountered have had either a low-level license or no license at all, but were very experienced coaches. It is all in how the message is delivered and received. Bear in mind, these are children playing a sport; they are not professional soccer players.

 

CFC’s registration fees are lower, but are the teams competitive compared to other clubs?

Yes, our teams have been very successful. In fact, within the last three years, we have had a U14 Girls Florida State Champion attend the National Championships in Colorado, a U15 Girls Semi-Finalist in Florida State Cup and a U13, U15 and U17 Boys Region B Champions, in addition to more than a dozen tournament champions spread out throughout all age groups within the club.

Our focus however, is on Holistic Development – all these players will be young adults and then adults and our goal is to provide a positive environment that creates a path toward whatever opportunity they choose to pursue. The percentages are so low for soccer scholarships and professional soccer careers that most will not take that career path, so our goal is to facilitate in whatever area we can.
