The spring of 2015 will be an unprecedented year in Wisconsin club soccer, as 50 high school aged players from FC WI Eclipse have chosen to continue their development and growth during the spring season in their club environment. The number of players participating in the 2015 "Spring Program" is an all-time high, and continues to show the leading role of FC Wisconsin Eclipse players in Wisconsin soccer.
The Spring Program is an optional developmental program for high-school aged players that desire to play year-round club soccer, and by doing so forego their WIAA high-school eligibility. Within the Spring Program, these players train in their club environment 3-4 days per week and participate in showcase events and other competitions in the Midwest. Participants in the 2015 Spring Program will also have the opportunity to participate in a ground-breaking performance study on using sports science to improve performance and reduce injury risk in elite teen athletes.
The FC WI Eclipse Spring Program is an optional program; not every player in the club participates in it. Participating players make a commitment to maximize their long-term potential and performance within the club environment, and by doing so make a significant positive impact on their performance and long-term development.
The 2015 Spring Program includes players from more than 30 different high schools. Players hail from throughout metropolitan Milwaukee and from as far away as Madison, DePere, Oshkosh, Kenosha, Racine, Minnesota and Illinois - representing the diversity and reach of FC Wisconsin Eclipse. The 2015 Spring Program participants are listed below:
