Nautsa’mawt FC and Fusion FC are announcing their new Affiliate Agreement. The Affiliate Agreement comes from Nautsa’mawt FC’s vision and development model to engage, educate and empower Indigenous children and youth with sport. Along with Fusion FC’s years of success developing and nurturing players a lifelong passion for the game.
This agreement represents a positive step forward for both clubs as we build together to achieve our shared visions and goals within our football community.
The Affiliate Agreement main focus is the collaboration in player development:
- Developing pathways for our players to play at the League 1 level is important. Fusion FC will run the development squads for our Nautsa’mawt FC League 1 BC teams.
- Creating a valuable development infrastructure allows for easy communication between teams and players.
- Highest level of Technical development for the player. Our two clubs are fortunate to also have Jesse Symons as the Technical Director ensuring the standards of training and development which is best for our athletes.
“We are excited about the potential of this partnership and look forward to working closely with Nautsa’mawt FC to build a brighter future for both of our clubs. Since our first Hope and Health camps to this new partnership it is wonderful Fusion FC can be a part of the incredible vision Nautsa’mawt FC to Canada.”
