We would like to share with everyone that GGFC and MSC are exploring an alliance for the 2014/15 season. The goal of an alliance between our two clubs is to make use of MSC’s operational support to improve day-to-day operations, to improve communication between GGFC club management and parents, and to increase the presence of GGFC in the soccer community.
Another goal of an alliance is to strengthen the experience for players on the field by capitalizing on the combined experience of GGFC’s Director of Coaching Manfred Kapper and MSC’s Director of Coaching Ray Selvadurai to continue to offer a strong soccer curriculum and to oversee progress on the field so that each team is receiving consistent, developmentally-appropriate soccer training and game-day coaching.
GGFC’s commitment to girls’ soccer and focus on player development will not change. GGFC players and teams, including our U16 boys team playing under the Gotham FC banner, will by and large continue to work with the same coaches. The alliance will allow GGFC and MSC to provide additional collaborative opportunities, such as guest playing at tournaments, joint practice sessions, skills clinics and social events. The alliance will also provide a geographically more convenient option for families in the downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn communities who would benefit the combined strength of GGFC and MSC. Both GGFC and MSC are very excited about the potential of an alliance and the opportunity to better serve you!
