COVID-19 Update 5/1
We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Thanks everyone for your patience during this time. At this time the state has now decided to cancel all state wide spring tournaments. That is state cup, soccer village cup, and presidents cup. We haven’t heard official league decisions for KSSL, KPL, and KASL. As a club we are going forward with ending the spring season to properly plan for going forward! Anything being offered in June and/or July will be discussed if it happens at that time. We would like to still offer something if allowed!
Flames will have tryouts for the 2020-2021 season. Please sign up through our website. There will be no charge for tryouts this year due to everything going on. Our plan is to have a tryout sometime after Memorial Weekend. What will these tryouts look like? That is truly a good question. At this time we are NOT sure what they will look like. We will be taking all the information given over the next few weeks to figure that out. Please stay patient with us but overall we want to still prepare and have everything situated for when we may be able to get back to soccer. Make sure when you sign up for tryouts, add your childs history of soccer! We will continue to update our website, www.atleticoflames.com. Click tryout tab on our website to sign up.
Current 2019-20 season is done. We will be crediting players accounts for next season. You will get an individual letter about your credit. Once you get that, you should send questions to Alex Shearer (firstname.lastname@example.org) AND Heather Goodman (email@example.com).
No tryout fee. Just need to know commitment/plan to be part of Atletico Flames for next season. Tryout info will come out in different email in the next day or so.
We will be preparing ways to handle roster/distance-online learning programs for soccer if in person tryouts and fall season cannot happen. With competitive soccer being a full year commitment, this is the best way to go about this at this time.
2020-21 Costs are on the website. If we cannot resume normal soccer training/season due to Covid guidelines, we will create an online program. This would come with a commitment to our teams of a $50 deposit. The cost of this will NOT be our normal full year costs. More information will come when we get closer to making rosters and if we know Fall can be normal or not. We will put together an online program where coaches handle google meets, video practices, challenges, competitions, and individual meetings too. We want to make sure we still create an enviroment for interested players in our club and area to grow over this time!
Coaches for age groups will stay similar but will update officially over the next few weeks.
Atletico Flames Futbol Club was founded in 2003 as the competitive arm of Elizabethtown Youth Soccer Association. Our club was built on the spirit of volunteers who sought to grow soccer in the greater Hardin County area. 17 years later we field as many as 24 teams, coached and trained by our staff consisting of coaches from various backgrounds ranging from high school and college and even internationally capped players.
Our mission is to grow and develop the beautiful game in the Hardin County area by developing an unmatched culture centered around accessibility, learning and a growth mindset. It is our duty to serve the player and see their potential realized.
