The Chili F.C. U13 boys team won the New York State West Thruway League’s 2013 Presidents Division this year with a smashing 8-0 record. F.C. is the first Chili team to participate in this premier league and enjoyed an exciting run in which they allowed only 4 goals against in 8 games, while playing a creative brand of possession soccer.
By winning this division, the team automatically qualifies for the prestigious U.S. Youth Soccer Region 1 Presidents Cup Tournament in 2014 as well as promotion to the Thruway League’s National Division.
The coaching staff credits the team’s success to the hard work the players and parents put in over the past year, during which time F.C. secured extra training sessions thru team fundraising efforts. In addition, Chili F.C. contracted above and beyond on their own with CSA Player Development Coordinator Craig Demmin to work closely with the team in the months leading up to the season; which the coaches feel has been a huge contributing factor to the team’s growth. With such a consistent focus on player development, Chili F.C. is sure to continue to enjoy more success on the field in the future.
Chili F.C. would would like to thank the CSA Board for their support of F.C.’s bid to break ground for CSA in the Thruway League and in helping them achieve success while doing it, as well as thank their two main sponsors (The Summit Federal Credit Union and Party City) for their continued support.
