CFC’s U16 Comets, coached by Roger Gonsalves are now Four Time Champions of the Bazooka Tournament. Leading up this victory, the Comets most recently finished Third in the Disney International Tournament, falling just short against the eventual champions from Panama (Costa del Este).
Great job Comets!!!
Clermont FC recently formed a partnership with Clermont’s newest neighbor, Dick’s Sporting Goods. One of the benefits they have to offer us as a Valued Partner is a coupon that can be printed without limit (click on link below).
In return for visiting their store and using this coupon (it is barcoded specifically for CFC), the club will receive points toward any needed equipment and also cash type sponsorships that we qualify for.
Please use the coupon as frequently as possible, because the more points we accumulate, the larger our sponsorship value grows with Dick’s Sporting Goods leading to bigger and better perks for Clermont FC.
There will also be a link to the coupons on our “Partners” tab of the website, just click on the Dick’s Sporting Goods logo.
Registration is open for those interested in our Developmental (In House) program for ages 5 through 10. It will be scheduled for Wednesdays (5-8 yr olds) and Fridays (9/10 yr olds).
The first session(s) will be on Wednesday, Sept.10th and/or Friday Sept.12th (depending on age). It will run 8 weeks and conclude on Wednesday, Nov. 5th and/or Nov.7th. There is no soccer on Oct. 29th and Oct.31st.
Registration fee remains the same – $85. Check our “Developmental” tab for more information.
One of the positive improvements we are making to the program is that everybody will be wearing the “Red” uniform beginning this Fall season. You will be ordering one when you register (unless you are a returning 5/6 yr old boy – they already have the red uniform from last year). The cost ($25) is added to the registration and it for a jersey, shorts and socks.
We will be ordering directly from Score Sports, so all you have to do is enter a size on the registration form. The reasoning behind this is so that our families do not have to buy uniforms every year or two. If it fits you can continue to wear it.
There will be a cutoff in mid August, so that we have enough time to order uniforms and have them before our first session.
Hope to see you all this season!!
On June 22nd, CFC held a Spirit Night during the USA/Portugal World Cup Soccer Match. It was a blast for all who attended (except for the final score) and an even bigger success for CFC. We held several raffles and thanks to Beef O’Brady’s generous donation, we raised over $1000.
A huge “THANK YOU” goes out to the families who attended and an even bigger “THANK YOU” to the Kennedy family for hosting us and our club families!
Hopefully, we can hold another event in the near future.
The following list are items raffled during the evening:
1 – A Golf Foursome at Legends Country Club (Value – $125)
2 – One year (2 seasons) + Uniform Package for Developmental Program (Value – $195)
3 – One year Competitive Registration (Value – $350)
4 – A 3 Day/2 Night Stay at one of 12 U.S. Locations at Holiday Inn Vacation Club (Value – $400)
5 – Outdoor Package (Grill, Tent, and 4 chairs) from BJ’s (Value – $500)
CFC recently said “Goodbye” to two of its long time Board Members. Richard Bisaillon (President) and Heather Wooding (Treasurer, Registrar and In House Coordinator) announced their retirements effective May 31st. Richard had been with CFC (formerly South Lake Soccer Club) since its inception in 1992. Heather had been with the club for over 12 years. To continue moving the club forward, Joe Venezia was elected President, Steve Green will remain as Vice President, Kevin Johnson was named Secretary/Treasurer, and Henry Quevedo was elected to the Board.
Good Luck Heather and Richard! The club family will miss you both very much!
Clermont FC U13 Boys were invited to the GCF Division 3 playoffs held May 10th as a #4 seed. In the semifinals, they played a tough #1 seed Ormond Beach team, and after tying them in regulation, beat them in penalty kicks 4-2. In the finals, they defeated an FC America team 4-0 to win the Championship. We are really proud of our boys representing CFC and bringing home the trophy.
