Born in 2010, 2011, 2012, or 2013? Here are the leagues for you! FC Alliance proudly offers the Boys Elite Soccer League and Girls Elite Soccer League for players born in 2010 and 2011. We also offer the Challenge League for players born in 2012 and 2013.
Elite League Information (2010 and 2011):
Last spring, FC Alliance started the Girls Elite Soccer League and watched it quickly grow to eight teams. Each team had their own coach, their own practices and their own uniforms. For Fall 2017, the club is expanding and offering the same type of league to the boys. The league is centered in West Knoxville, but there are also teams from Anderson County and Sevier County. Every game is against an opponent with different uniforms and different coaches, making it a real league experience to go along with FC Alliance's coaching. Home base is Nicholas Ball Park.
Starting August 28, official practices will begin. All players with 2010 and 2011 birth years are invited to play. The first games will be Saturday, September 10. Ready to start earlier? No problem! In August, league directors Will Turcious and Kayleigh Olsen will offer weekly open skills training and small-sided games to interested players.
What makes this league good? The experience of having your own team with unique opponents. There will be two practices weekly with your team and not a large group. This gives coaches more chances to interact with individual players. Also, the Saturday morning games are real games. The format is 6v6 with goalkeepers and referees. There are no mesh pinnies... each team gets their own unique dry-fit jersey!

Challenge League Information (2012 and 2013):
Our popular Challenge League features teams from Knoxville, Clinton, Norris, Sevierville and Gatlinburg. Most games will be played at Nicholas Ball Park, but the program will visit Anderson County for a jamboree, Sevierville for a jamboree, and then host a huge three-county soccer festival at Nicholas Ball Park. The Challenge League focuses on learning basic soccer skills such as dribbling, moves, passing, receiving and shooting. Most importantly: it focuses on having fun!
Practices begin on Tuesday, September 5 at Nicholas Ball Park. The first games are Saturday, September 9, also at Nicholas Park. All players will receive an official FC Alliance game shirt.
