To meet the needs of our membership, we are pleased to announce that FC Alliance has secured a lease on an indoor sports facility on Middlebrook Pike. “The Field House at Amherst” is located at 1750 Amherst Road and will be an amazing addition for our FC Alliance family. It will be managed by the club, but will also be open to the general public.
Throughout the year, we will now offer many of our skills sessions, goal keeper training, futsal and other programs at the facility as part of the normal fees members already pay. In addition, our teams will have access to this facility as a part of the “rain insurance” program and for FC Alliance teams wishing to train indoors, deeply discounted rental rates will be available.
"The Field House at Amherst" is a top notch indoor sports complex which will feature state-of-the-art turf that is being installed as I write. It is large enough to accommodate one field for adult games or two for youth matches. The facility includes a community room for parents and siblings to relax in during training, bathrooms, an office and a concession stand. The community room will feature flat screen televisions and will be wi-fi enabled. This room and entire facility will also be available for team parties, birthday parties, coaches training, and meetings. We will be working up party packages soon.
We truly believe that this is the right step for our club and are excited to make it. At the same time this is a weighty move that will require our members to unite behind it to make it work. The turf and other capital improvements to get the facility off of the ground will cost +$40,000!. Formidable as that may sound, we pleased to announce that we have received an offer of a very generous donation from one of our key sponsors, Pilot Corporation who has committed to a $20,000 Matching Contribution. Donations to this effort will essentially be doubled!
Please appreciate that we are not asking the membership to sell candy bars or coupon books to raise money….we are not raising member fees or making any special assessments. We simply are making the opportunity know to our membership and asking folks to consider how they might be able to be involved.
