The FSC Board of Directors is excited to announce that we have recently come to agreements with Indianapolis Premier Soccer Club and Noblesville United Soccer Club to consolidate our Travel programs and become ‘Indy Premier SC’. The merger will enable us to provide an expanded full-service soccer program to include a U15-U18 senior program in addition to our existing U8-14 travel program.
When will this consolidation occur?
The clubs will be officially consolidated around the June 1, 2014 time frame and will conduct tryouts in early June as Indy Premier SC. FSC as it is right now will continue to operate and support our current teams through the conclusion of their spring 2014 playing season, including any teams that advance in State Cup play.
Will my fees increase next year due to the consolidation of clubs?
No. The Indy Premier SC fee structure will remain the same for the 2014-2015 soccer year as it was in the 2013-2014 soccer year for FSC U8-U14 teams and for IPSC U15-U18 teams. The only exception will be those teams who will play in the new Elite Program that didn't play in it this past year, on the U14-U18 girls side at IPSC. We will explain this in more detail in our informational meetings. Indy Premier SC will offer a fee structure that includes registration fees, league and referee fees, tournament fees, coaching fees, and indoor training fees, like we offered this past year at FSC.
What uniform will the consolidated club use?
Indy Premier SC will be a prestigious Nike Premier Club. This unique opportunity will provide multiple benefits to our club and players along with the recognition as one of only 50 Nike Premier Clubs in the country. Detailed Nike uniform information will be made available on our web site prior to tryouts. The primary uniform colors will be blue and black.
How will the club consolidation change tryouts?
Tryouts for U8-U12 teams will take place at the Cumberland Park Campus in Fishers and the 196th St Campus in Noblesville. Tryouts for all U13-U18 players will be held at the New Hope Campus. Additional details on tryouts will be posted to our web site at www.indypremiersc.org over the next couple of weeks.
Where will Indy Premier teams play games and practice?
U8-U12 teams will train and play out of the Cumberland Park Campus and the 196th St Campus. U13-U18 teams will mostly be based out of the New Hope Campus. More detailed information will be posted to our web site at www.indypremiersc.org over the next couple of weeks.
What will happen to the current coaching staff?
Indy Premier SC soccer operations will be under the direction of Jamie Wood and Bryan Michel. Our current outstanding team of FSC coaching professionals will continue to be involved in the new organization. Jamie and Bryan will be working to ensure that Indy Premier has the very highest level of coaching staff which will be dedicated to making the club one of the best in the Midwest.
Will the new club offer just Travel soccer?
Indy Premier SC will also offer a new Rec Plus Academy Program which will be aimed at players who want more than what Rec soccer offers but less commitment in time and expense than Travel soccer. This program will offer play in dual age groups of U6/U8/U10/U12/U14/U16/U19 and will run out of Cumberland Park in Fishers.
What will happen to recreational soccer?
As previously communicated, recreational soccer will be run by the newly-formed S.P.O.R.T.S. Youth Soccer (SYS) organization. Programs are open to boys and girls in preschool (age 4 by 7/31/14) upwards and will be divided by grade during the season of play. Recreational soccer will also continue to be offered in Noblesville by NUSC.
How will I be able to find out more information concerning the club consolidation and program offerings?
Over the next couple of weeks the new Indy Premier SC full-time staff will be scheduling informational meetings with teams to provide additional details about the program offerings, coaching staff, and what to expect going forward. Over the next several weeks, additional details concerning program offerings, travel tryouts, fee structure, field locations, and coaching staff credentials will be posted to our www.indypremiersc.org web site. The website will be changing over the next 10 days as we add new content. You can also follow us on Twitter @IndyPremierSC and on Facebook www.facebook.com/IndyPremierSC .
We will ensure the transition is as seamless as possible and you will continue to receive the same high level of training, professionalism, and performance that you have come to expect as a Fishers Soccer Club family.
