MIFC Spring Academy
Mercer Island FC is excited to hold Spring Academy for kids of all abilities. With a focus on learning and improving individual skills, it's a great way to prepare for Select or Premier Soccer tryouts in the spring as well as provide Recreational players an opportunity to get ready for fall soccer.
