Competitive Program

FOSC Competitive Program

Our competitive program at Fair Oaks Soccer Club is comprised of teams, families, and players that prefer longer soccer seasons, more challenging training and game environments.  FOSC has one of the largest recreational programs in the Sacramento area. As a result, many of our recreational players transition to competitive soccer.  This allows us to add to our competitive-level teams and provide the kids in the community the avenue to a deeper commitment level to continue their enjoyment of the game.  


  • Higher levels of competition & skill
  • More games, practices and league seasons! (typically 2 seasons Fall and Spring)
  • Weekend tournaments (Numbers varies by team 2-5 on average).   
  • Higher levels of play, fun, commitment, participation, support from coaches, players, and trainers.
  • Scrimmages, team budget, activities and additional training opportunities 

FOSC Coaches

Through close coordination with our Director of Coaching and Competitive Program Coordinator, the club prides itself in selecting and keeping experienced and skilled coaches. FOSC also offers/support with coverage for ongoing coach educational opportunities to continue their growth and development. 


  1. FOSC Player Club Registration Fee: $225
  2. Monthly Club dues/fees:  $0  (Yes, zero, always zero!)
  3. Uniform: ($170. New uniforms planned for 2020)
  4. Trainer Fees:  Varies by team but typically identified in the overall team budget (if applicable).  FOSC provides a specialized goalie trainer for all our comp teams (free).
  5. Shared Team Fees: These fees vary per team but typically will range an additional $200-375 per player for the season (year), including trainer fees noted above.  The cost will vary slightly depending on the number of league seasons (Spring, Fall, Summer, Winter league), weekend tournaments the team may participate in.
