Parents of River City FC,
It is with great pleasure that I get to share this exciting news with you today…
The #RascalNation has just joined the Michigan Sports Academies (MSA) family, with the pursuit of providing the best possible sports experience for the kids in our city, especially your children.
MSA has specialized in volleyball and basketball programming, through their entities of Michigan Volleyball Academy (MVA) and Michigan Basketball Academy (MBA). They are now in the lacrosse market with their Michigan Lacrosse Academy (MLXA) as well. In the past 6 months, MSA has purchased 3 of the largest, nicest soccer facilities in West Michigan: the Fieldhouse, Woodland, and Sports Spot. This is where we come in.
Effective immediately, River City FC will now be the epicenter for all soccer programming that is to take place through the MSA organization. We will operate under the new entity, “Michigan Futbol Academy (MFA)”. By no means does this mean that we are losing our name, and our culture. These things will stay intact.
We are eager to bring the whole of who we are into what MSA has built. From Character to Capability to Community, our mission will remain the same. From Little Rascals to Rascals to Revolution, our programs will still kick butt. Our amazing staff will continue to be committed to learning and growing with your athletes, on and off the field.
How, then, will this change? Joining the MSA family will allow us to have an even greater impact on the young athletes in this city. Our mission and vision will reach more kids. Our programs will flourish in their new facilities. We are eager to offer consistent programming at our new fields. For those of you who have been with us for the past few seasons, welcome home. We did it!
So, my dear friends, I ask that you reign in the New Year with River City FC as we embark upon the next chapter in our story.. We understand that there are many questions that come to mind during this transition. We hope that we have addressed them in our FAQ’s document.
Come on over to MSA Woodland tonight (Jan 3) to join us in our new home! We’ll be there from 4:30-9 PM. Looking forward to celebrating with you!
The Big Rascal
