Buffalo Soccer Club Announces Merger with Wright County Soccer Club

 

Buffalo Soccer Club and Wright County Soccer Club are excited to announce that we have joined forces in an effort to bring a more complete array of soccer playing opportunities to the surrounding community.  This merger will allow our soccer playing youth the ability to pursue soccer at a level that best suits their needs.

As one club, we will continue to offer the same Recreation and Competitive programs you have all come to know.  Together, we will be able to maximize the use of resources, such as field space, referees, and coaches.  This merger will also allow us to work toward the common goal of providing the best experience we can for our participating players and families.  In addition to our summer Recreation and Competitive programs, all member families will have access to our year-round training programs which include Camps, Fall Soccer, Winter Training, Friday Night Open Soccer and Coaches Training Sessions.  This will provide exciting opportunities to any player at any given time during the year.
