Our Winter Camp series starts in January, at the Shattuck Dome. In 2023, our camp was from 6:45 to 7:45 pm. Campers needed the following: a water bottle, a soccer ball and wear shin guards and cleats if they have these items. We had a great turn out but would love for you or your child to participate. Watch for information on the registration page towards the end of 2023!!
Outstanding article from the Faribault Daily News, authored by guest columnist Chuck Briscoe. Enjoy the read!

First, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for being a part of the Faribault Soccer Club! The mission of the Club is:
“The mission of the Faribault Soccer Club (referred to as FSC) focuses on the best interest of all youth participants in soccer. FSC helps all youth participants develop their skills as soccer players to the best of their capabilities and to gain an appreciation of the game of soccer as a team player. FSC strives to inspire youthful participants with the fundamental principles of teamwork and fair play, while having a focus on fun.”
After a couple of years dealing with the impacts and restrictions based on the Global Covid19 pandemic, I’m happy to report that we were able to return to the pitch this year and provide meaningful games, opportunities for betterment and growth, learning opportunities, and fun.
There have been quite a few changes over the past year, and as we navigate these changes, please know that the overall goal is to grow the club and provide more opportunities for all of our players. One of the key changes this year was joining the Southern Minnesota Soccer League (https://www.southernminnesotasoccer.com/). The mission of the SMSL is:
“The Southern Minnesota Soccer League (SMSL) serves established and growing soccer communities of Southern Minnesota. SMSL provides competitive leagues in classic levels of Black and Blue (Black the higher designation). SMSL also focuses on developmental ages 10U and younger and provides recreational soccer registration services. SMSL is committed to providing quality traveling soccer experiences while fostering and growing soccer throughout the region.”
The first year of the league had some growing pains, but I believe a foundation is being laid that will only improve our programming in future years. The league is comprised of 21 Clubs from Southern Minnesota. Overall, our teams performed well, and we look forward to continued improvement and competitive matches in the years to come.
2022 also brought along the first season of Academy Soccer. This is also an initiative of SMSL. The Faribault Academy is a transition program between our continuing successful Tiny / Little Feat program and full-fledged traveling. It is focused on skills development with minimal travel, to nearby clubs for ‘Soccer Saturday’ events – one day friendlies to get a taste of travelling. As with most things, there were some growing pains that should make future events better. Faribault also plans to host a Soccer Saturday next season. After this initial year of Academy, the Soccer Saturdays will shift from a jamboree format to more of an ‘Academy’ approach in scheduling, fields, rules, and officials.
Our Board has been very active this year in transitioning to the new league, building teams and running the program. We are always looking for help to steer the direction of the Club. Your time and talents are needed. We have open positions on the Board if you would like a voice in steering the future of the Club.
For the first time, we had to develop a Co-op relationship with the Northfield Soccer Club. Northfield was a great partner in setting up teams for girls u12, u16 and u18. This was done out of necessity for both clubs, in order to give players an opportunity to continue their soccer careers.
Costs are always a factor in activities we do. Although the FCS has the lowest fees of any Club in the area, we still see this as a challenge for many. We are working to bring some new initiatives to help keep or lower costs to make soccer affordable for everyone. Some of these initiatives include incorporating volunteering, fundraising and jersey sponsors. If you have any ideas, please share them.
This year, we switched from an “Association” to a “Club”. This name change has significant meaning in that it raises expectations – of the Club, the players, and the parents. The key area we are looking for growth and improvement this next season is in the commitment by all. The commitment to not only attend but also give 100% at both practices and matches. Player, parent, coaches, and Club commitments, attitude and effort not only impact your soccer player, but all the players on the team.
Thank you again for participating this season and we are already planning for next year! Watch for information, especially around some of the initiatives to make soccer affordable for all ~ it is, after all, the most popular sport, by a wide margin, in the world!
Please reach out to any Board member with questions or suggestions!
Jason Johannsen, President
Faribault Soccer Club
Welcome to our New Web Page! Please browse and check out the content, more will continue to be added! In addition to this, we wanted to let families of current and future soccer players know of some exciting new changes with our program!
First, we are switching our website to a new, hopefully more informative and easier to use site. The new site, using SportsEngine design and hosting service, is a popular youth sports webservice that many Associations and Youth Sports Organizations are using. It allows you to seamlessly link accounts for various sports and groups. It will also make registration seamless and provide more information for you as members of the Faribault Soccer Community.
Second, we are pleased to announce that Faribault Soccer is joining the Southern Minnesota Soccer League (SMSL). This League is made up of South of the Metro teams, following the “Hwy 14 Corridor” and promises to reduce travel and have competitive leagues. We are excited to be part of this new league, which has also been joined by almost all regional and Big Nine communities.
Third, we are starting a new program, called the Faribault Soccer Academy. This program, for 9 and 10 year-old players, will be a bridge between our hugely successful Little Feat Program and full traveling soccer in the new SMSL. The focus of the academy is skill development with decreased travel to help the transition and respect the time of our families. The Academy would most likely participate in a couple of one day weekend mini tournaments with other Academy programs, within 25 miles of Faribault.
The goal of these changes is to allow our players to experience the fun of soccer while building on skills and learning teamwork in a positive environment. Having programs that take our youth from the young age of 3 and 4 (Tiny Feat), all they way to High School (Faribault Falcons Boys and Girls High School) will help learn skills, build camaraderie and improve not just the level of soccer in our community, but grow the game and nurture our players to be the best they can be.
The Soccer Complex fields are open!
