Fort Worth FC’s First Annual Parent/Player Play day, hosted by FWFC’s 01G Red team, was a very successful 4 hour event filled with tons of soccer fun, bounce house fun, BBQ, and lots of laughs and smiles.
FWFC parents were able to show off their speed, their ability to move the ball, and their ability to score against their opposing team-their own children! The younger teams played against their parents in refereed, full length 5V5 games, while the U 11 and above played full 11V11 games. Although the kids thought they had easy wins in the bag, they were pretty surprised by their parent’s ability to pass, move, head and shoot the bal. In order to pull a win for their team, both the youth and, as labeled by the kids “The Golden Oldies”, had to work very hard to earn their team a win. Not only did all participants enjoy their time on the field, all spectators were completely entertained from the opening stretches of parents to their interaction with one another on the field.
With this new event a complete success for the club, the next play day is being planned for the Spring with more family fun guaranteed.
Congratulations also goes out to the 06 Girls Red! They won the Arlington Labor Day Tournament - scoring 14 goals and allowing zero all weekend. The FWFC '06 girls played beyond amazing. They have been working hard on communicating on the field and using smart passing and it paid off this weekend! The girls also ran three different formations and were able to change on the fly and execute well! We had a lot of fun watching the '01 girls take home the win in their championship game....we ended the weekend with a well deserved trip to the Parks Mall where we ice skated as a team. What an amazing weekend!

The 01 Girls Red competed phenomenally this past weekend in Arlington's Labor Day Shootout. The girls played a hard fought game against FC Dallas West Texas, but suffered a heartbreaking loss of 0-1. They then competed against Solar White winning 2-0 and played another competitive match and winning against Texas Lightning Carter 1-0. The finals put the girls competing against FC Dallas West Texas once again. This very exciting game resulted in our girls winning 1-0. Well done girls and Coach Frank!

Congratulations to our 01 Boys Red and coach Ben for making boys Classic league for the 2014/15 Fall/Spring season. After advancing last weekend they were drawn into a winnable group. They knocked the ball out of the park by winning 3 - 0 and 4 - 0 to assure another season in classic league. The boys played great on both weekends by winning 4 games and drawing 1. Well done boys and Coach Ben. Our 99 Boys fell a little short on the second weekend. They played very well and needed to win the last game but found themselves with a tie! Well done Coach Chris and the boys for a really good showing these past two weekends. This team is on the up!
