FPSC was founded in 1969 and is one of the longest and well-established youth soccer programs in the region. We our celebrating our 50th year in existence and our Fury select program celebrated its 13th year and is stronger than ever. We have multiple teams competing in the NPL (National Premier League) and are having great success in our Classic, Copa and recreational divisions. The club has 21 select teams and 49 recreational teams. We currently stand at 320 Fury players and 540 recreational players strong. The club adopted the players first philosophy which represents our club’s commitment to placing long-term interests of each individual player at heart of every decision in structuring, operating and managing our club. The true success of this club comes from the many volunteers, parents and coaches who have shared their time and effort to make this club something special.
