COVID-19 Update 3/26
-Atletico Flames FC will be following the recommendations announced by Kentucky Youth Soccer today. We will suspend all in-person soccer and related activities though April 19th. This will be revisited closer to that date. We should also already be following that!
-Facilities such as Carroll, local schools, and Etown Sportspark are also closed for in-person soccer and related activities. PLEASE FOLLOW social distancing recommendations.
What does this mean?
Flames will be working on our plans to get through this. We are going to work closely with our coaches on what we can offer during this period. We are discussing how to handle finances going forward. As far as future tournaments, refunds, credits, and other things, we cannot answer that yet. The Nashville tournament information will be our biggest focus to find out soon! The clubs hosting the tournaments will be getting in contact with us about how to handle going forward. A lot will depend on if we get back to soccer at all this spring. We appreciate your patience throughout all this. Thanks!
We are looking at:

Atletico Flames FC
Atletico Flames Futbol Club (AFFC) was formed in 2003 as Flames Soccer Club, the competitive branch of Elizabethtown Youth Soccer Association (EYSA). The club began with mostly volunteer parent-coaches and only a few teams. Now after only 12 years we field more than 18 teams with paid coaches having previous high school, college and/or international playing experience as well as current or previous high school and/or college coaching experience.
Our teams, U10 and above, participate in the Kentucky Select Soccer League or the Kentucky Premier League. U9 Sparks Academy participates in the Kentucky Youth Soccer State Academy program.
The club uses fields at Mike Carroll Soccer Complex, Nicholas Street Fields and local high school fields.
Our club also has the opportunity to use the NEW Elizabethtown Sports Park for weeknight games and to host tournaments. This complex has state of the art facilities with over 10 new soccer fields. Visit our parks and recreation city site for more information. All of AFFC’s administration is performed by parent volunteers.
Atletico Flames is having a supplemental tryout this Saturday, 2/15/20, for our U14 boys team. Any player that is born in 2006 and 2007 is welcome to attend. There are multiple spots open for this team. This will be held my Erik Krivitsky, Head coach, at Bluegrass Sportsplex. 208 Peterson Dr., Elizabethtown, KY 42701 from 4-5:00PM. The tryout will be on the turf field and you can wear cleats, turfs, or indoors. If you have any questions, email Justin Maddock at email@example.com.
