To facilitate lessons and skills which not only enhance a players enjoyment of the game, but can also transcend the sporting arena and help prepare them for what life has to offer. To simply strive for success will never achieve excellence, but the pursuit of excellence will ultimately achieve success.... be all that you can be.

Emerald City FC exists to develop each of our players to his or her fullest potential, competing at the highest possible level while demonstrating exemplary teamwork, sportsmanship, and a passion for the game.
