Over 40 FC Wisconsin Alums Prep for 2016 College Soccer Season!

August 2nd was the first day that college soccer players were allowed to report for the 2016 NCAA college season, and on that day dozens of FC Wisconsin girls players were on campuses ready to begin.  The 2016 NCAA college season will see more than 40 FC Wisconsin girls alums taking the field for colleges all over the country.

"We are exceptionally proud of our club's track record helping committed athletes realize their dreams of playing college soccer," said Director of Coaching Christian Lavers.  "Our first focus every day of training is the long-term development, opportunity and success of these players, and it shows in how many players the club has helped reach their potential and become collegiate student-athletes."
