Organizations Working Together To Expand Playing & Coaching Opportunities

Somerville Youth Soccer and Boston Vigor FC Academy are pleased to announce a joint strategic partnership that will expand playing and coaching opportunities throughout the city.  This strategic partnership expands SYS's reach into the diverse communities within our city and increases opportunities for our players to further develop their skills within a high-level club program.

Beginning July 1st, SYS will provide administrative support for BVFC that includes the club’s work with the City of Somerville and its participation in the New England Club Soccer League.  Boston Vigor will work directly with Somerville Youth Soccer on expanding its current program offerings for both boys and girls and will enhance coaching opportunities in our city through Vigor’s strong network.  The primary goal is to get kids from all areas of the city (and nearby towns) playing together on the same soccer field.

“We are extremely pleased as an organization to enter into this partnership with Boston Vigor,” SYS President Dominic Lachowicz said.  “We share the common goal of providing opportunities for Somerville youth to play soccer at every level, and this collaboration will yield growth, development, and enhanced outreach and inclusivity throughout both SYS’s and BVFC’s programs.  I want to thank SYS Director of Soccer Gregory Janks and Boston Vigor FC Academy owner Wilson Teixeira for their hard work in making this all possible.  We couldn’t be more excited to strengthen the mission of both organizations by working together.”

“SYS and Boston Vigor have always enjoyed a strong relationship, and this partnership takes our efforts to the next level,” Janks said.  “Our goal is simple—to provide children with the chance to play together and maximize their potential by creating a compassionate but challenging environment. Coach Wilson has established his club as one of the best in the region by sharing that same philosophy. We are excited to work closely together to achieve that goal.”

Tryouts for Boston Vigor’s upcoming Fall season will be held this week and next.
