It’s Not Just About Soccer
Saco, Maine Velocity FC (formerly Velocity Soccer Club) has formed an officially partnership with XL Sports World-Saco to expand delivery of developmental and premier soccer in Southern Maine. The partnership, says Velocity FC President Rick Doyon, “positions both of our well established organizations for expansion and stability of our soccer programs in a time of tremendous uncertainty.”
Velocity FC is a non-profit premier soccer club established over 20 years ago. Our coaches are highly trained volunteers, this allows us to keep the cost of our programs affordable. We exist solely to share our love for the game of soccer in a competitive and fun environment. We pride ourselves in developing well rounded soccer players but more importantly good community citizens. “It’s not just about soccer” isn’t just a tag line, it’s a distinct difference in our club philosophy. This philosophy is shared by XL Sports World making this an ideal partnership.
Located up and down the east coast, XL Sports World offers state of the art, climate controlled indoor & outdoor sports and fitness facilities. They are a family orientated company offering a variety of community based sports programs. XL Sports World-Saco, located on North Street, has well-established soccer development programs from tots to teens, under the direction of General Manager Jamie Kelly, bringing a large feeder program to the partnership and a promotion program to their participants. “I’m eager to collaborate with Velocity FC coaches and board to provide quality soccer programs to our Southern Maine community” says Kelly.
During a time of major influx in our world as well as soccer programs in Maine, we are excited to bring our 2 organizations together to ensure continued access to soccer programs for players of all ages and skill levels. As part of our partnership, XL Sports World and Velocity FC are offering complimentary soccer clinics with local and international coaches starting in February. Visit XL Sports World - Saco for more information and to and reserve your spot.
Together we hope to ensure soccer development is attainable and affordable for all players who share our love for the game!
