In addition, the High School Fee covers entrance into a late fall or early high school soccer tournament.
Players who do not have an FC Storm uniform kit will pay an additional $200 for their uniform. Club uniforms are changed about every two years. Our current design is a custom Under Armour uniform that includes two jerseys, shorts, socks and a practice jersey.
Coaches, particularly of new teams, may collect additional money for team equipment (game ball, pinnies, bench if the team does not have one, keeper gloves, etc.). This is typically done in the fall.
Scholarships are available if needed. Click here to learn more.
Storm uses local soccer fields in Loveland. Since Storm is under the umbrella of the Loveland Youth Soccer Association, the Storm teams have access to the same fields that the recreational teams use. Most Storm teams will practice at Phillips Park on Rich Road. Your team’s coach will work with our field scheduler who assigns practice days, times and locations.
Home games are played either at Phillips Park or Miami Meadows Park in Milford.
We believe in investing in our community. We believe it is a privilege to play soccer for FC Storm, and that soccer should not be just about ‘me’.
Each team is expected to undertake a community service project each season as part of its investment in the community. Our Coaches and Team Admins work hard to make this a rewarding and fun experience for our players, and we couldn’t be more proud of their efforts.
We offer financial assistance to young soccer players who may not be able to participate in soccer due to a lack of financial resources.
Funds are given out once a season, and a new application is required each season with no limit to the number of seasons that you may apply.
Forms must be filled out entirely and must provide a clear picture of need and circumstances relative to the need, and the Head Coach must also submit a team budget that outlines the player’s fees to the Committee.
Assistance may be used to cover club and team fees. The maximum amount shall not exceed the full amount of one season’s budgeted player’s fees (club fees and team fees).
Financial assistance does not cover uniforms, other team or spirit wear or equipment or optional winter training for indoor soccer. Click Here to Apply
