Reign FC Partnership
May 2019 -
Emerald City FC is both excited and honored to announce its official relationship with the Reign FC as a ‘Community Partner Club.’
The Reign FC are the only professional women’s team within Washington State and is home to some of the best players in the World. In addition to their cutting-edge professional program, they are also the only USSDA designated girls’ program within WA State, providing the highest level of play, coaching and technical education, with a direct pathway to the US National Team.
As an official ‘Community Partner Club’ (CPC) Emerald City players, coaches and member families, will be afforded unique learning experiences such as USSDA Curriculum training, Technical and Tactical support, as well as exclusive access to specific Reign FC events. Emerald City will partner in community with the Reign FC to help make high level training and professional support more accessible to girls in the Pacific Northwest. This will include direct access to Reign FC coaching staff, discovery nights, and guest coaching / training opportunities for our players.
This coming 2019/20 season the Reign FC will be expanding its current number of high-level teams to include age groups starting at U10. As a Community Partner Club (CPC), Emerald City players have a unique and direct pathway for consideration.
In addition to continued development throughout all our girls’ programs, Emerald City is also pleased to announce the creation of a new Player Development Program in association with the Reign FC. The “ECFC Reign Drops” will cater for our younger girls in the U8, U9, and U10 age groups beginning in August. This will be a fun and functional player development program that will provide players the opportunity to work within the Reign FC curriculum and develop a love and passion for the game. It will also serve as a direct pathway for those players wishing to be considered for the Reign’s Pre-Academy teams starting at U10.
As both the Reign FC and Emerald City FC share the same core values and philosophies about youth sports, this partnership represents a positive commitment to our community and a fantastic opportunity for our members.
As part of this. we will be adding a Reign FC Partner Club logo onto the left sleeve of every girl's jersey.
