Soccer event leadership, vision, management and coordination of indoor and outdoor tournaments. Provide lead expertise and mentoring development of satellite local soccer clubs, local leagues, school programs and regional league including championship pyramid and schedule. Activation of a year round training plan and competitive challenges provided for the playing members.
- 100 to 400 registered players

LONG RANGE: Comprehensive Vision that provides future competitive framework for youth to compete. Includes league play covering the Lake Ontario to Lake Champlain region with over 1,000 registered players. Exceptional senior games, college all-star events and the construction and placement to provide the next level of competition for youth players of the region.

Three conferences known as West, Central and East.

A Western conference with Watertown, Canton, Malone, Potsdam and Massena as main program hubs. Local recreational play among members with age specific travel teams playing limited matches between the main hubs.

A Central conference with Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, Keene and Elizabethtown as main programs with same local league format and limited travel program.

A Eastern conference with Plattsburgh, Peru, Chazy, Willsboro and other Lake Champlain communities joining in. Local organized competition already exists in Plattsburgh but higher level competition is infrequent.

Freeze FC will have its main training headquarters in Canton, New York but have satellite local branches in Lake Placid, Potsdam and Saranac Lake to begin.

The founding members intend to reach out to ANY interested existing clubs, leagues, community recreation programs, towns and schools with coaches education program, player clinics and in-house parent-volunteer coaching courses. A team system ‘style of play’ will and curriculum will be established and taught to every FC Freeze coach so that the agreed style of play carries throughout the club and provides a consistent foundation and reference for players, coaches and supporters.

Freeze FC will provide a club ‘role model’ and the stimulus for the launch of a competitive league and opportunity to affiliate with the National Governing Body, US Soccer and Eastern New York Soccer Association through the Capital District Youth Soccer League.

Referee, administrative, promotional efforts will be undertaken as well as organizational efforts at inter-conference play, schedules, select teams, travel teams, tournament play and formation of soccer events – 12 months a year.
