Club History

Solon FC is a non-profit organization that was formed in the spring of 2014.  A group of Solon area parents recognized the gap between Rec League soccer ending in 6th grade and High School Soccer in 9th grade.  While parents could join travelling teams in Cedar Rapids or Iowa City, they are sometimes prohibitively expensive, both in cost and time commitment, while also limiting the child to focusing on just one activity.  
 
The Solon parents goal with Solon FC was to create an environment that would allow area youth (boys and girls) to continue to develop their soccer skills beyond the Rec League experience, but still keeping it affordable and flexible enough to allow participation in other sports or activities.
 
With these goals in mind, Solon FC is fortunate to have as it's coaching directors Jeremy McMurrin, the Solon High School Boys Soccer coach, and Raven McMurrin, Mt. Mercy College Womens Soccer coach. Their combined 22 plus years of coaching experience at the High School and Collegiate level provide Solon FC participants an advanced level of coaching and teaching expertise that focuses on skills, teamwork, sportsmanship and fun while providing all players with the environment they need to grow and develop as a soccer player and team member.
 
Currently Solon FC has over 80 Solon area youth participating across the grades three through eight.  In the Spring and Fall we have two practices per week to develop skill work and team work.  We also partner with Kickers Iowa City and play games in Iowa City in the Fall and Spring Seasons.  In the Summer there are optional Kick-Arounds at Spartan Stadium once a week and Solon FC coordinates a week long summer camp put on by the Chicago Fire-Soccer in the Community outreach program.  In the winter, there are optional indoor opportunities that Solon FC helps to coordinate with AYSO in Cedar Rapids and with Kickers in Iowa City.  
 
In the Spring of 2015 the Solon Economist wrote up a nice article about Solon FC which can be found here.
