Our players compete at the highest levels in New York Club Soccer League - Premier (NYPL); Westchester Premier and WYSL Divisions 1 and 2.  FCT welcomes players regardless of hometown and produces competitive teams of players with similar skills and desire.

FCT builds character through the sport of soccer.  

  • Our mission is to provide players with the highest standards of individual and team development. 
  • Every training session has a logical progression, with exercises and skills moving from the simple to the complex.
  • Tactical training (functional, individual, group, team) progresses from unrestricted to restricted, before moving onto activities with goals. 
  • Technical training moves from the fundamental to game-related to game condition.
  • Small-sided games and scrimmages keep the training fun and social.
  • We teach the physical: ball control, change of direction, shielding, passing, crossing, shooting.  
  • We empasize the mental: good decision-making, confidence, competitive sprit and teamwork.
  • Our Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach works with every player to improve overall fitness, agility and endurance.
FC Transylvania makes the Good player Great and the average player Very Good.
 
Being a player at FC Transylvania is something very special. Our players receive superior professional training in skills, tactics and strategy. They also learn life values: team play, hard work, sacrifice and sportsmanship.

More than that, our players love the FCT experience --that's why 90% of our players stay with us year after year.
