Meaning, go well beyond being an organization that just houses soccer teams. Compliment that by offering a membership with real benefits.

Here's some things to consider:

  • Voting rights
  • Club hosted parties and activities
  • A gym
  • Field access
  • Multiple sports
  • Real city / neighborhood connection / outreach / integration
  • Real business partnerships and integration
  • Real school connections and integration

We should have a culture formed around being a club member.
