Meet Kara Moore, one of three Captains for FWFC 00G team. Kara has been playing select soccer with Fort Worth FC for four years and has been one of their Captains for three years.
Kara believes that some of the leadership traits that are important to have as a Captain are: good chemistry, good communication, having 100% faith in everyone and playing your heart out for each of your teammates. She says it is important to motivate the 00G by reminding them what their team goals are and how they need to get there before and after they play regardless of having lost a game or not.
Kara’s advice for younger FWFC players who want to play in both high school and select is to keep in mind that playing in high school is more for fun. It will give you the chance to keep touching the soccer ball. However, if you’re wanting to play in college, it’s important to stay select because that is where colleges will look at you. If you plan on taking your game to the college level, never quit playing select or high school soccer.
You can find this Azle Hornet playing mid field and forward for Azle High School and forward for FWFC. Her plans are to play in college and she would like to keep playing and go as far as she can with this sport!! She would like to earn her degree in something that involves working with children.
Let’s meet Micaela Rodriguez, Captain for Fort Worth FC 00G. She has been with FWFC for four years and has been a Captain all four years. Micaela says that important leadership traits which are necessary to be a good Captain are: loyalty, attitude, trust, good communication, and truthfulness. Before games Micaela will tell the girls to play their hardest and give it their all, and that it is important that they never give up. After a loss, she will remind her teammates to keep their heads up and that they will get the win next time!
Some advice Micaela has for the younger players at FWFC who are interested in playing select and high school would be to know when to rest your body, and treat high school just like club. She says that it is important to go out and try your hardest on the field!
Micaela attends Crowley High School and will graduate in 2019! You can find her playing center-mid or outside mid for both FWFC and Crowley.
Introducing, Bailey Cook, Captain for the 00G team. Bailey has been playing with Fort Worth FC for four years and has been a Captain all four years! She says as a Captain it is important to know when it’s okay to joke around and when it’s time to be serious. Being humble is also an important trait to have as a Captain and most importantly, always playing as a family. Before each game Bailey and the other two Captains will send out a message before some of the games and have a pep talk with the team before every game. When the team faces a loss, Bailey and the other Captains will motivate the other players to play as a family the next game and get the win!
For younger FWFC players, Bailey says it is important to have confidence in yourself, always have integrity, and to be humble.
Bailey is a Junior at Lake Ridge High School and will graduate in 2018. She plays left defense in high school and right defense for FWFC. She plans to play soccer in college and major in education with a minor in psychology.

It is crazy to think that we are already into the 2015/16 season. We have teams that are getting ready for QTs this week and others that are starting off their pre-season schedule. This weekend we had teams taking part in Puma Cup and King Tut Tournaments. Allot of our teams had mini team camps last week to build up for these two events.
Congratulations to FWFC 06GB, FWFC 03GB, FWFC 01BW, and FWFC 01GR for starting off the 2015/16 season with a trophy! Winning the Puma cup Gold bracket and King Tut Gold Bracket respectively.
Some Highlights for these teams was, 06GB beating Dallas Texans South (Ranked 3 in NTX) in the group game and then repeating the win, in the final on PKs! 03GB sailed through their group and then played very well in the final to win 3 - 0 over Solar Red 02s. 01BW played a very good FC Dallas Team from Monterrey Mexico. They lost the group game but beat them in the final in a repeat match, that was very physical, fast, and end to end. Our 01GR played very well in King tut, with a highlight win over D'Feeters ECNL team.
A good run by FWFC 98BW to make it to the final of Puma Cup. Loosing to TX lightning 97 team. Well done boys!
Some good efforts by FWFC 07GB, FWFC 05GW, and FWFC 03GW. All playing well this past weekend.
Well done to all our teams and coaches, especially with the heat!

Our 05 Girls White had a great weekend at the Xara Winter Storm 5v5 Tournament in Mansfield. They made 2 teams for the tourney (05G Remmel & 05G White). Both teams did awesome in their brackets with lots of great passing, fast feet and LOTS of shots on goal! Both teams made it to the semifinals only to face each other, but the 05G White team would be the ones to advance to play Liverpool in the finals. 05G White played their little hearts out and tied the match 1-1 which went into overtime and the GOLDEN GOAL. With only 1 minute left in overtime the 05G White team played hard, moved the ball around, found an opportunity to smash the ball in the back of the net and winning 2-1!!! Way to go FWFC 05G White and Coach Frank for an awesome weekend and becoming TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS!

Congratulations to FWFC 03 Girls White for winning the Memphis Invitational Tournament in Tennessee. They played very well in cold conditions and sometimes in some monsoon rain! They made some top teams from other states look very ordinary. The final was fantastic for the girls. They go tot play on the Memphis College stadium field in front a big crowed as they only had that field left to use with all the rain they had. It was a great experience for girls and they put on a very good show to beat a very good team from Nashville that simply did not know what hit them.
Here are the weekend results. With the heavy rain around the south it was amazing we got any games in. We had allot of teams playing in Tournaments all over South. In Memphis, Tulsa, and the DFW area! We had some very good results and even though allot of teams did not finish they played great in the games that took place. Talking with our coaches they was very pleased with the effort and style.

FWFC '06 Red took first in the Chisholm Trail Classic Soccer Tournament this weekend!! We started the tournament with a 0-0 tie with Liverpool FC America and ended Saturday with a 3-1 win over FWFC White. Sunday morning we walked away with a 5-0 lead against Odessa Revolution FC and finished the day with a 1-0 over Heart of Texas Comets to take the title of Tournament Champions!! The girls ran three different field formations and adapted to each on the fly, one of which was introduced in the last ten minutes of practice on Thursday!! Every one of my girls gave 100% when they were on the field and cheered their team on when they were off. Emily Munoz and Journey Curs received tournament MVP's for their undying perseverance in each an every game this weekend, a big shout out to my keeper Peyton Roberts for her Sunday shut out! FWFC Red girls are making memories, building friendships and working as a team all because of the game of soccer!! I am loving coaching my girls!
