BENEFITS

Quality Coaching

Competition Selection

The network of contacts with other soccer clubs throughout West Virginia and in surrounding states helps assist member teams who seek admission to prestigious leagues and tournaments or who desire friendly matches with other teams. In addition, WVFC hosts or assists with numerous competitive opportunities that provide a venue in which our member teams can be showcased.

WVFC Board Of Directors

The Board of Directors for WVFC (“BOD”) is a body of elected or appointed members of the Club who jointly oversee the activities of the organization.  Each position within the BOD is elected annually by the membership for two year terms.  To help promote stability and consistency, the Club has two Class’ of Directors whose terms are staggered every other year.  Board seats consist of the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, At-Large (2), and an elected representative from the Player Development Committee.

In general, the Club’s BOD is comprised of a fair representation of the membership.  Effort is continually made to ensure that equal representation from the Academy (Boys/Girls) and Travel (Boys/Girls) is achieved as well has geographic considerations.  The Club enjoys a wide footprint that spans the I64 corridor east of Charleston to west of Huntington.  In addition, with a large pool of membership, the Club looks to draw on the personal and professional strengths of its members to serve in appropriate positions.

The BOD of WVFC meets in person no less often than on a monthly basis.  All of the meetings are conducted in an open session and are available to any of its membership or invited guests to attend.  It is common place for the BOD to conduct business through tele-conference or emails between meetings should immediate needs arise that may be time sensitive.

The Player Development Committee is a six-person committee made up of senior members of the club solely focused on making group decisions in the best interest of the players and WVFC. We understand that every team, player, and situation has unique characteristics that make most decisions a case-by-case basis. Through collaboration between coaches, the PDC and parents, WVFC is confident in its process for determining the direction of soccer-related issues and concerns. WVFC is also confident the six members of the PDC will make informed, abstract, and objective decisions. The PDC meet on a monthly basis to plan, prepare, and resolve any issues relating to players as well as plan for upcoming events and other situations that may arise. If you would like to bring something to the PDC’s attention do not hesitate to contact one the PDC via this email:
