Winter Sharpness

Winter Sharpness/Parent Camp

Every winter Mercer Island FC offers this popular Friday night program. It starts in January and typically runs through the end of February. Winter Sharpness allows players to scrimmage with other players of their age and skill level under the watchful eye of former Mercer Island High School boys coach, Colin Rigby. Rigby is assisted by experienced Mercer Island FC and Eastside FC coaches.

Not only do the kids get high quality academy style training from great coaches, but the parents get a training session too! Aaron Byers, MIFC's Vice President of Player Development has the parents come and do the same activities the kids are doing and progressing through. You get a full understanding of why we do these activities with the players and you have a lot of fun. Last year we had 30+ parents work with Aaron each Friday night. Of course, you can always use the 90 minutes to go have a dinner with your spouse. But then you'll miss out on the fun of learning the same skills as your son or daughter!
