Washington County FC Joins SC Wave Family
Bringing SC Wave to over 2,000 Players
ROC Ventures is pleased to announce its Wave soccer programming is growing. Washington County FC is joining the ROC Ventures SC Wave family. The program will now be called, SC Wave Washington County. SC Wave currently has programs at SC Wave Waukesha, SC Wave New Berlin, SC Wave Greendale, and SC Wave Walworth. All of the youth programs are in the same family as the 7 time indoor professional soccer champions the Milwaukee Wave.
“We are excited to be a part of SC Wave.” Stated current Washington County FC President John Seifert. “This merger gives us increased access to summer camps, name recognition and other resources needed to help grow competitive soccer in Washington County while at the same time keeping a great deal of decision making local and retaining much of what we enjoy in our community club. "
Affiliation with SC Wave provides SC Wave Washington County participants access to new playing opportunities, expert coaches, and top tier training facilities including the MOSH Performance Center. The MOSH Performance Center is being developed by ROC Ventures at Ballpark Commons in Franklin and slated to open late fall of this year with construction currently underway. The MOSH Performance Center will feature over 40,000 square feet of commercial space for performance- and wellness-based services, uniquely integrated with an additional 75,000+ square feet of four-season turf on the ground floor for athlete training, tournaments, and games—the only full-size indoor soccer field in the state. These resources are uniquely available through SC Wave as one of the premier soccer clubs in the United States - thereby maximizing player development and providing a more complete and exceptional experience for the athlete.
“There are a tremendous number of talented male and female soccer players in Washington County,” stated SC Wave President, Shan Amini. “This new affiliation will allow more players to use the SC Wave methodology and curriculum that has been so successful for our other athletes.” Amini continued, “The cross training and playing opportunities will benefit SC Wave Washington County players as well as players and teams across the entire club.”
