Our Mission

We strive to offer a fantastic family experience through the creation of an environment that focuses on the growth of each individual player, fostering a love for the game, developing life/team skills through the game and providing a pathway to playing beyond high school.

Who We Are

For the past 25 years Vermont Fusion Soccer has been a pillar of youth sports in the Manchester and the surrounding communities. We are an independent, non-profit (501-3c) with a mission of improving player skill development and fostering a life-long passion for soccer.

Our Philosophy

We believe competitive soccer should be affordable for all players. Our club fees are lower than most other travel programs, thanks to financial support from our own Green Mountain Challenge Tournament, local area businesses, and volunteer time from parents and board members.

We are sensitive to the financial needs of our families and for that we offer a very giving scholarship program and multiple sibling discount for families with three or more kids registered during the same season. We encourage you to ask about this if your family is finding our fees a hardship.

Youth soccer should be inclusive for all players. We strive to keep all players who try out and make every attempt to not cut athletes. We will evaluate and assign players to the appropriate team where their skills can best develop and be successful. Fusion has multiple teams at some age groups and each team plays a full schedule. All players can improve their skills with the right teaching and a personal commitment to hard work along with a desire to improve. Teams receive extensive training and a competitive schedule so each player can improve throughout the season.

Vermont Fusion teams train indoor/play futsal starting in January utilizing Manchester gyms and move to the turf at Riley Rink in March for team trainings.

Outdoor trainings are held twice a week on local Manchester fields which are the nicest grass fields in Vermont.
