Oconee FC (OFC) is a 501 (c) 3 charitable non-profit organization which offers soccer instruction and competition for boys and girls. OFC is an affiliated member of Georgia Soccer, United States Youth Soccer, and US Club Soccer. A partner with Oconee County Parks and Recreation. 

Focusing on Individual Player Development

Beginning with the youngest age groups, training sessions focus on the love of the game and mastery of individual ball handling skills. OFC’s soccer programs progressively instruct and challenge participants using a developmentally sound curriculum. Each program is designed for the physical, mental, social and emotional development of the participants. Tactics and emphasis on game results take a back seat until players are skilled enough with the ball and developmentally ready to play as a team. Long term player development takes priority over the short term results. 

OconeeFC is operating as a GA Soccer Affiliate Member  for Select & Athena, Indoor Recreation and Academy Level travel teams.

What is Oconee Futbol Club doing regarding children that are 6, 7 and 8?  We have implemented a Junior Academy program for this age group. This is NOT a recreation program. The training provided is by licensed professional coaches. It is the Next Level above recreation and intended to introduce the skills necessary to excel as a soccer player. 

The Junior Academy is designed to develop young soccer players through their formative years and to give them all of the ingredients they need to succeed in the game at the highest level. Players from an early age need to acquire the technical ability to master the ball and be proficient with both sides of their body. Players are placed into age and ability groups to train twice a week in addition to their core age group, with expert professional staff. 

The staff will teach and develop these players to have the confidence, and the technical ability to enjoy the game and be successful at whichever level they find themselves upon their graduation from the Academy. It is the Academy's primary aim to make soccer fun so that the vital ingredient of enjoyment is achieved at all times

 This is going to be a great year as players will have more training sessions and more inter club games. Junior Academy program will run in the Fall and Spring. We just completed our first Winter Indoor program. Location?Westminster Christian Academy. Who can participate? Players in the age range 6, 7 and 8 are encouraged to participate,. The Junior Academy is for players who want to challenge themselves to reach the next level. Players need to be proficient in aspects of the game such as finishing, defending, passing and/or dribbling, or possess some good athletic qualities. The Academy is meant to challenge players to the next level of competition. Our program is designed to be an introduction to the Academy program and give them the tools needed to play in future years.  You can obtain more information or download a registration form by calling Dante Trevino, Director of Academy at 706 372 6347 or email: dtrevino@rxsuite.com.

U16 Boys make the finals of the Clemson Anderson Soccer Classic

For the second time this preseason, the U16 Boys make the finals in tournament play. In the final, they fell behind 3-0 in the first half to a strong and fast Upstate SC team. However, they did not quit. They changed their formation and strategy in the second half and outplayed the opposition. USC settled in on defense and had to stop a number of opportunities. In the end, USC won the game but it was a valient effort to come back. The boys were missing two players but had the help of a guest player.  Their season looks to be a good one. Keep up the pace guys! The club is rooting for you.
