FC Tred Avon Gearing Up For New Season


FC Tred Avon soccer league is gearing up for the new season. Registration has already started and runs through August 20, 2017. This league is a premier soccer experience for kids in the community.

Len Foxwell, president of the FC Tred Avon Advisory Board, commented Last year’s inaugural season of FC Tred Avon was more successful than any of us could have imagined, and it catapulted the YMCA of the Chesapeake to the forefront of our region’s youth soccer movement.  Now that we are the only recreational soccer program in Talbot County, we will take this program to a far higher level this fall.  With highly-trained coaches and referees, a beautiful new training center in partnership with Talbot County at the corner of Glebe Road and the Easton bypass, state-of-the-art equipment and attractive uniforms; FC Tred Avon is offering the families of the Mid-Shore a travel soccer experience, without the travel, at YMCA prices, and we are making the global game available to everyone”.

In this league, kids have a superior learning experience while having fun. Everyone is welcome to play. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, there is a place for every child. The Y also offers financial aid so no one is turned away from activities or membership because of an inability to pay. This policy enables the Y to serve all the children in the community.

FC Tred Avon is made up of many partnerships. Len Foxwell commented “My thanks to Abby O’Donnell and the entire YMCA team for their hard work in making FC Tred Avon the fastest-growing youth sports program in our region.  I’m also deeply grateful for our community partners – from our local businesses that sponsor our player’s kits, to the Baltimore Blast, Salisbury University and G.R. Cannon and the staff at Shore FC – for helping us deliver such a quality product to our kids.”

Having Coach Alex Hargrove, University of Salisbury Head Soccer Coach, and G.R. Cannon, former DC United player, participating in our clinics/camps this year and last has amped up the program. When kids can meet and learn from athletes of this degree of competency, they gain skills, knowledge and a greater respect for the game.

We tend to think of fall sports beginning with the school year. The games will run from August 28-October 28. This will enable the Y to end the season before the time change in November. As Maryland has changed the beginning of the school year, parents will have to remember that registration for FC Tred Avon soccer ends August 20, 2017. If you have any questions, please contact the Easton Family YMCA.
