Challenge Soccer Teams

Challenge soccer is for players who are seeking a higher level of competition than what can be offered at the recreation level. These are players who are looking for further development in their individual and team soccer skills. It also serves as an introduction to parents and players to the commitment required of travel soccer. At FWSC, our Challenge coaching staffs are encouraged to be Licensed with either NCYSA  -- Youth II,  F, E, or D Coaching Licenses.

Practices will be held twice a week, usually 1 ½ to 2 hours long.  For the fall, practices begin August 1 and run until mid-November.   Spring training starts in February and runs until mid-May.  These are just practices for season games.  Tournament practices, depending on the tournaments, may extend past these dates.  Players are expected to be at all practices.  The days your team will train on are set by the coach.  One practice a week will include a one-hour session run by Soccer Genome professional coaches.  This additional training is included in our registration fees.  

Our 2021-2022 Fee Schedule:
