Evolution Soccer Club Announces Merger with Phoenix Soccer Club to Establish Evolution SC West
NAPERVILLE (March 30, 2019) – Evolution Soccer Club announced a partnership with Yorkville-based Phoenix Soccer Club to establish Evolution SC West, the club announced today.
Evolution SC West will serve the greater Oswego/Yorkville area and will be based out of Yorkville, IL. This is the first affiliate club added to Evolution Soccer Club family, allowing the club to increase its geographical footprint and the reach of players that can be positively impacted by their development philosophies. Phoenix SC coaches will grow and work hand-in-hand with Evolution Soccer Club to continue to provide player growth and development to the greater Oswego-Yorkville area. Evolution SC West will begin its operation as of the 2019-2020 season.
“I am delighted to add have such an exciting and like-minded club as Phoenix SC to join the Evolution family,” said Kieran Howarth, Evolution Soccer Club’s Executive Director and Founder. “Phoenix’s philosophy, style of play and holistic approach on player development made this a very easy decision to expand the club’s presence and reach. We believe this partnership will be a seamless transition and help elevate and create new opportunities for the players and coaches alike moving forward. As a club, we have lofty ambitions and this is a huge step forward and we’re very excited as to the potential it has to grow for years to come.”
“Partnering with Evolution SC immediately creates a stronger foundation for our players and coaching staff,” said Danny Del Toro, Phoenix Soccer Club Director of Coaching. “After seeing what they’ve been able to achieve in such a small period of time, and having extensive discussions with Evolution Directors regarding player development, our ideas and philosophies aligned perfectly. We’ve been approached by several other local soccer clubs over the years, but this merger and opportunity made sense from every aspect. I am excited for this new journey as we keep focus on developing players to the highest level of their potential and making a difference in US Soccer.”
Evolution West will be hosting their annual tryouts over May 20 & 21 at Go For It Sports in Yorkville. For more information and tryout registration, please click here!!
