Coral Springs United F.C. & Fort Lauderdale Strikers Announce An Exciting New Partnership Sure To Benefit CSUFC Players
The Coral Springs United Futbol Club (CSUFC) Board of Directors is pleased to announce our participation with the Fort Lauderdale Striker’s Club Affiliation and Partnership Program (C.A.P.P.). This affiliation is designed to bolster CSUFC’s program by providing a variety of opportunities for CSUFC players and coaches to interact with Strikers’ players, coaches and technical staff.
Highlights of the affiliation include Strikers’ players and coaches assisting with CSUFC training sessions, player evaluations and coaching instruction. Coaches from the Fort Lauderdale Strikers will be present at our 2012-13 try-outs to evaluate players and rate them objectively. There will also be opportunities for CSUFC teams to play games at Lockhart Stadium, attend “chalk talks” with Strikers’ coaches prior to games and participate in other on-field activities at Strikers’ home games. In addition, every CSUFC player who registers for the 2012-13 season will receive Strikers’ tickets that are redeemable at any 2012 regular season game.
CSUFC President Mike Driscoll reiterated that “Our priority is to provide Coral Springs United players all of the resources necessary to excel at their game and grow as players. We are very excited about our affiliation with the Strikers as this relationship will contribute a differentiating and exclusive value to our players.”
The Strikers and Coral Springs have a long partnership history, dating back to the 1970’s when developer John Taravella and former Coral Springs Mayor Ben Geiger asked the original Strikers to assist in the development of a youth soccer program in Coral Springs. In the 70’s and 80’s, there was a designated section in Lockhart Stadium for season ticket holders from the Coral Springs area,” said Strikers’ President Tim Robbie. “An affiliation between the Strikers and Coral Springs United is a natural alliance that will provide tremendous benefits to CSU, the Strikers, and the sport of soccer as a whole in the South Florida community.” CSU also intends to join forces with West Pines United and other potential affiliates to offer enhanced training and playing opportunities for elite players from both their girls and boys programs.
CSUFC Vice President David Horacek stated on behalf of the CSUFC board “Our vision is to make Coral Springs United one of the most recognizable clubs in the state of Florida. This strategic alliance is indicative of our plans to expand our offerings to the soccer community and build meaningful and productive soccer relationships, in order to cultivate youth soccer and player development.”
This partnership is the first of many exciting things to come for CSUFC!
