Announcing Rivals United, a joint premier program from New Canaan FC and Darien SA.
New Canaan FC and Darien Soccer Association today announce that we are collaborating to create a top-level premier soccer program for our players. Rivals United, a joint premier program will commence play in the 2019/2020 season initially for the U15 girls and boys, with other age groups added based on demand. The long-term plan is to offer teams at U12-U15. All age appropriate Darien and New Canaan residents will be eligible to try out. The intent is to provide an opportunity for players to experience premier level programming and competition combined with the affordability, convenience and flexibility of playing at a local level. Importantly, New Canaan FC and Darien SA will continue to offer their full range of traditional programs including multiple travel teams at each age group.
Krista Tully, President of New Canaan FC added, “We are confident that this combined offering will resonate with many of our dedicated soccer players who are multi-sport athletes and allow them to further develop as soccer players, which is a positive for both the players and the respective high school programs.”
Mike Moore, President of Darien SA said “We are excited to offer a top premier experience and pathway while promoting the community spirit and rivalry that is lost in today’s premier landscape.”
