"When I started training with Coach Billy, I was just 15 years old. Each session, Coach Billy demands the most out of his goalkeepers by training hard. It is the little things that he focuses on most, such as having quick footwork, which has helped his goalkeepers develop their game. Not only does Coach Billy demand the most of his goalkeepers on the field, he makes each session enjoyable. " Sandro Van Kuijck UMASS BOSTON NCAA DIII Sweet 16 2016.

"Goalkeeping is my passion. Simply put this is what I DO. Teaching this position,helping a child  reach their potential, and BE their BEST on and of the field is where I seperate myself. FC Blazers goalkeepers learn to build character, self esteem, strong habits and discipline through the art of goalkeeping"- Billy Levitsky

Playing for FC Blazers was one of the highlights of my childhood. Francis understands and teaches the game of soccer extremely well. He knows how to push his players so they play up to their full potential, instilling a culture of never being satisfied and always striving to improve. The lessons I learned from FC Blazers have played a huge role in my ability to achieve my goals on and off the field.
