Force Soccer Club
Location & Hours
Force Soccer Club found its beginning as ‘The Plainwell Force Girls Soccer Club’ to promote and develop players for the Plainwell High School Women’s soccer team. After a few years, the word ‘girls’ was dropped from the club name thus including a boy’s team. In addition, the word ‘Plainwell’ was also dropped to open the club up to other surrouding cities.
Although the name has changed, FSC remains committed to its original principles which are: to teach the game of soccer; to help each player reach his or her highest potential; and to build a better community through the active involvement of our teams, coaches and athletes. The Force Soccer Club strives to create an environment in which players are provided the necessary instruction to effectively develop both individual and team skills. Through these skills players develop: self-confidence; teamwork; good sportsmanship and community pride.
The Force Soccer Club is primarily a Select level soccer program however some teams play at the Elite level, when appropriate. Accordingly, FSC strives to field teams that will compete effectively and be successful. At the same time, the game of soccer should be fun for young players and it’s important that this is always kept in perspective by parents, players and coaches alike. The Force Soccer Club is a volunteer, community-based program whose coaches are licensed by the U.S. Soccer Federation. FSC is a Western Michigan Youth Soccer Association (WMYSA) league club and therefore, most league games are held within the Southwest Michigan area. FSC tryouts are held each year in June as dictated by WMYSA league rules. FSC teams play in a club assigned Memorial Weekend tournament and may play in other tournaments as deemed appropriate by individual coaches.
