The Triangle Futbol Club, a non-profit 501C3 corporation, was created in 1999 through a merger of three successful youth soccer clubs serving the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill areas. These clubs, Carolina United Soccer Club, Knightdale Soccer Club, and the Triangle Soccer Academy, combined forces to form a new club that could serve the fast-growing Greater Triangle area. Merging the resources of each club brought together the collective experience of nationally recognized youth and collegiate soccer coaches, as well as experienced youth soccer club administrators. In 2014, TFC merged again with Fuquay-Varina Athletic Association and Carolina Soccer Club to form Triangle Futbol Club Alliance, serving Cary, Apex, Morrisville, Holly Springs, Fuquay-Varina, Durham, Chapel Hill and Raleigh.
The mission of TFCA is to develop youth and enhance communities in the greater Triangle Area, through the sport of soccer. TFCA's focus is on developing the individual player within a team environment, regardless of economic status. We believe our programs not only develop the complete soccer player but instill character traits that assist individuals in becoming a more positive influence within society.
As a soccer club we strive to create a fun and competitive environment. We develop every individual within the team system and feel our club fosters success for players on higher levels of play within college and the US National Team environments. Our developmental model stresses achievement within our club by competing for state, regional and national championships. We have developed a framework that will instill character, self-esteem, confidence and sportsmanship within each athlete.
TFCA believes that our superior coaching staff provides an additional foundation for our players through their knowledge and ability to teach individual skills and group tactics. We actively recruit quality coaches and offer educational opportunities which ensure our staff remain on the forefront of the game.
TFCA operates within a framework of core values that help mold and define opportunities we offer the membership we serve:
- a standard of excellence established to ensure first rate experiences in everything we do.
- dedicated staff who work to provide an unparalleled level of professionalism
- various backgrounds and experiences create well-rounded people
- the forethought and vision to offer dynamic and progressive programs
- desire and discipline to compete in every situation, regardless of the obstacles
