at Dulles Announce Strategic Partnership

Sterling, VA (June, 22nd 2024)–  The St. James Football Club and Michael & Sons Sportsplex at Dulles announced today a new strategic partnership that highlights a shared approach to athletic excellence by offering full service and year-round soccer and futsal programming out of the Sterling based facility beginning this Summer of 2024.

The combined efforts of TSJFC & Michael & Sons Sportsplex will enhance the soccer community in Loudoun County and Western Fairfax County and will provide a more robust programming model for recreational, competitive and futsal players throughout the year.  Beginning this summer we will be launching Summer Recreational Soccer League programs conducted by the professional coaching staff of TSJFC as well as beginning a year-round Futsal Academy and Training Clinic program.  Beginning this winter, Michael & Sons Sportsplex will host The St. James Futsal Academy’s North Region programs and will serve as an additional site for the NCSL Futsal League hosted by The St. James.  Additional program offerings are also being planned.

“We are thrilled about this new partnership with The St. James Football Club, said Jo Gelber, Regional Manager of Dulles Sportsplex.  This collaboration will bring unparalleled opportunities for soccer and futsal players in our community, providing them top-tier coaching, facilities and programming year-round.  We look forward to enhancing the athletic experience for all participants and supporting their growth and development.”

The St. James FC boasts an exceptionally experience and professional staff which includes coaches from all over the world.  Additionally, TSJFC coaches bring professional, collegiate and club coaching experience that will help players at all levels achieve their goals.  The TSJFC staff have and continue to support individual player development, team formation as well as pathways to college, professional soccer and the US National Team as well as supporting the exploding Futsal community.

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to partner with an organization that has been part of the fabric of the soccer community in Loudoun.  We have a shared desire to continue contributing to the growth of soccer and futsal here in Loudoun County by offering high level programming and a high level experience for all of the participants,” said Adam Baumgardner, The St. James FC’s Director of Soccer & Technical Director.  “This partnership wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Jo Gelber and her team as well as Chris Pruden, the TSJFC Boys Director of Player Development and North Futsal Academy Director and we are excited to get the summer programs kicked off.”
