FD Football Club is a 5o1c3 organization that was born with the main goal of promoting and teaching all age levels of youth soccer in Orlando.
Our mission is to positively impact our community by executing high-quality soccer programs for youth players of all levels in a positive learning environment while teaching good sportsmanship, and respect for the opponents, spectators, referees, and coaches.
From FD we seek to give the soccer player the fundamentals to be a high-performance athlete so that he/she can get athlete scholarships offered by universities in the US or become a professional soccer player.
Our vision is to be the most respected Football Club in Florida State and the Southeast United States. Our goal is to develop players with a long-term project enriched with timeless values of sportsmanship, mutual respect, teamwork, and game concepts. We wish to inspire our youth into amazing athletes and leaders who have a safe and positive experience with a lifelong love of the game and a desire to improve their community.

This program will increase body mobility, body awareness, technical proficiency, tactical understanding and most of all self-efficacy of their own abilities. Goalkeeping is a unique position that a mistake normally has a bad result. Knowing this, we strive to work on the mental side of the position as well as the physical side.

"FD Football Club is the best soccer academy with an actual development plan for kids. Coaches at FD Football Club train on every aspect of the game. The training sessions are amazing, as the club follows a very rigorous, planned and elaborated training program inclusive of the fundamentals and basics of the game, as well as the technical, skill-based, and strategic aspects; unlike other academies who give coaches the freedom to coach independently and without a foundational and fundamental/ basic training program or plan.
FD Football Club truly cares about its kids and is the only academy I know that have coaches with professional soccer background, experience and licenses. The program Director, Gustavo Caraballo has a CONMEBOL license (which means he could coach any professional team subscribed to the CONMEBOL federation) and represented his country as part of the Venezuelan national team. Gustavo also played and coached in Copa Libertadores."
