The mission of Lowell FC is to provide children in the Phoenix Elementary School District with a soccer program that will develop individual soccer skills as well as a strong sense of teamwork and character.
The vision of Lowell FC is to create a recreational kindergarten through fifth grade soccer program, and a recreational, traveling sixth through eighth grade program that will enable players to have the necessarily skills to be competitive in high school.
During the 2012-13 school year, it was apparent to many that Lowell was a school that had a passion for soccer. In the previous year, the physical education coach and district welder create goals in order to separate the larger soccer field into smaller fields to allow more student the opportunity to play throughout the day. Then, during the Phoenix Elementary School District’s short six week soccer season for 7th and 8th grade students, there was a request from children, parents and the community to create a K-8 soccer program for Lowell students; however, the current design for Lowell FC will expand beyond Lowell school to include interested students from Dunbar and Garfield with the goal of allowing any student in the Phoenix Elementary School District the opportunity to play organized, recreational soccer.
Some students also might want to play more competitive, valley-wide soccer. In order to meet these needs, the Madison Futbol Club has agreed to help individuals with scholarships to play on their competitive club team if they try-out and make the cut. This is a great opportunity for individuals with a passion to compete at the highest levels in the valley.

Inaugural Season Logo
For this inaugural season of Lowell FC, the Lowell FC logo has been changed slightly to pay tribute to our long tradition of excellence in the community and to dedicate the season to a fallen member of our community.
Although Lowell FC was founded in 2013, Lowell School has been servicing children of the neighborhood since 1925. Therefore, we put the original date the school opened to honor the almost 90 years of tradition that the school brings to the neighborhood. Many return to Lowell years later with their children and grandchildren to ensure they receive the best education in a loving environment.
The scholar athletes will also be paying tribute to Mr. James Foley (teacher from 1996 -99) for his dedication to Lowell School and passion for reporting. Several students of Mr. Foley have their children at Lowell because they believe in the Lowell teachers. Mr. Foley instilled excellence in them, and they want the same for their children. During his time at Lowell, he believed in pushing students to their highest potential while ensuring they could still be kids. We believe Lowell FC will help push students academically while having an opportunity to enjoy soccer in a recreational environment.
