Dear Friends of FC HARLEM,

During the Coronavirus (COVID -19) outbreak, you and your child’s safety is our primary concern. FC HARLEM will postpone all programming until April 4th, 2020. We will re-evaluate the upcoming Spring season programs and communicate our plans going forward to our participants and their families.

L.I.O.N.S (Leaders In Our Neighborhoods) is a specialized program for talented and committed youth of color ages 10- 19 who often do not get opportunities to pursue soccer development at the highest levels. The program’s development model consists of licensed, competent coaches who use the small spaces of the inner cities, immigrant culture and creativity of the neighborhoods to develop dynamic soccer players.
