Metros FC youth soccer programs offer training and competitive play to boys and girls in the local and surrounding areas in Rochester, NY. Regular soccer league matches are played in neighboring towns (typically less than 30 minute drive) in the Rochester area during the months May-July.
In 2022-2023 Metros FC members are eligible to participate in basic skills group training for one hour each week with Coach Jaime Phillips and JGP Soccer. Contact email@example.com for additional information.
Individual teams normally train throughout the Fall and Winter months, in preparation for the local district Summer league season. Teams train at indoor facilities and may choose to participate in local indoor soccer leagues or indoor tournaments as part of their activities. FC member registration fees are nominal, and teams may choose to host fundraising events, or seek donations, to supplement team funding and to pay costs for activities. FC Teams will also participate in the annual Metros FC Tournament.
Age eligibility for Metros FC is 8U-19U. A tryout/evaluation is typically required for the player to demonstrate a reasonable level of interest and ability before participating in the program. We encourage you to contact us for any information regarding the Metros FC travel soccer program.
Note that in some cases, where player ability and skill may warrant it, a player may join a team in the age group +1 year. This requires approval of the travel program coordinator and coaching staff. Players may not "play down" to a lower age group. Contact us for more information regarding age groups for travel soccer.

Metros FC is powered by volunteers. Volunteering at the team level is encouraged, and we're here to see that you have the information you need to be a successful volunteer. Coaching or assisting at team practices, managing a team, or volunteering with one of the club's hosted events, these are a few ways to become involved. Contact us with any questions.
We share in the excitement and the desire to get back to soccer. Please keep in mind, all of us, all of you, must be responsible and proceed with caution.
We require all members to submit a "Hold Harmless" waiver before granting permission to participate in activities with the club. Please find a link to the waiver that follows. The waiver is required to be submitted before participation in any soccer activities associated with Gates Youth Soccer. You will complete a waiver, as part of the regular player registration form, for each Metros player in your household.
Please refer to the sections on Parent and Player responsibilities and guidelines in "COVID 19 GUIDELINES FOR RDYSL 2021 SEASON", which are agreed upon by your accepting membership or participating in any of the Metros FC programs.
As you contemplate returning to the pitch, it might also be helpful to take the Play on Pledge. The Play On Pledge is a powerful and unifying “call to action,” providing a foundation and opportunity for coaches, teams, players and communities to proactively affirm their commitment to health and safety during this challenging time. While every club and team situation is different, the Pledge enables members of our broad U.S. Soccer community to come together as one, in respect for the sport, each other and themselves. Together, we can keep our community healthy and safe. Show your commitment by signing the online pledge now.
Metros FC serves all levels of players and serves both girls & boys equally. We work to improve the level of play for each player, and to show players how much fun they can have learning the sport of soccer. We teach them the value of teamwork, sportsmanship, and fitness while considering their individual development. Part of our mission is to be a catalyst for a positive youth sports culture in all communities we interact with.
We consider the 09U-12U age groups to be developmental, while the ages 13U-19U are typically increasing levels of competitive play. Metros FC Travel Soccer is an organized, safe, and enjoyable soccer experience for youth players who want to participate throughout the school year.
