Welcome to the home of the

Chantilly Fuego!

News

 

Adios, Fuego

 
Fellow Fuegans:
 
After 13 seasons and nearly 250 games it is time to bid farewell to the Chantilly Fuego.  
 
For some of you, this has been a brief stopover for a couple of seasons.  But for others this has been a journey that began many years ago and took us from one end of the Mid-Atlantic region to the other, including stops in Broadway, Charlottesville, Stafford, Hershey PA, Prince Frederick MD, Hagerstown MD, and Virginia Beach, with lots of highs and lows in between.  Regardless, all of you have been a very important part of this team and should feel proud of your contribution – and that the Fuego was your home.
 
While I would like for all of you to have had a few more trophies on the wall, I never wanted the Fuego to be a powerhouse team if it meant sacrificing the things Coach Mark and I thought most important – the ability for everyone to learn, contribute, and have fun.  Looking back, I hope we were able to achieve that. 
 
I admire each of you for the way you played and conducted yourselves.  You never played dirty and always kept your cool, even when your opponents didn’t.  And I am so proud of the way you all competed week in and week out right up to the last minute of the last game, how much you all improved, and how close you became as a team. 
 
In fact, I have heard many of you say, "We're a family."  And in a lot of ways, that's true.  Many of you grew up together on this team, and others have found close friends here.  I hope everyone felt welcome and appreciated, and that your time as a Fuegan was happy.
 
Please know that this has been a magical ride for me, and I hope for some of you as well.  I have been a coach for over 30 years but I have never been with a group as charming, fun, engaging, eager, entertaining and tightly knit as this.  You are all very special, and I will miss each and every one of you immensely.
 
Thank you for the memories, the fun, the camaraderie, the humor, the excitement, the joy, the friendship, and above all, the honor of having been your coach.  I have loved every rainy, sweltering, freezing, agonizing, goofy, crazy, heart-breaking and exhilarating minute of it.
 
Good-bye, good luck, and please, stay in touch.
 
And, for the last time…
 
Uno, Dos, Tres…FUEGO!

Meet the Fuego

The Fuego were a girls travel soccer team from Chantilly, Virginia. We were proud members of the Chantilly Soccer Club and played in the Old Dominion Soccer League (ODSL) and the Washington Area Girls Soccer League (WAGS).

Our goals were simple: to have fun, learn, and grow as a team. We emphasized the fundamentals of the game – passing, foot skills, and teamwork...and above all, enjoying each other and the game of soccer.
