About the Team:
Ohio Galaxies FC is pleased to be fielding a team for the WPSL 2012 season. The Dayton and Cincinnati area provide a variety of highly skilled high school and collegiate level players which form the basis of the WPSL - Ohio Galaxies FC program. The WPSL program provides these players the opportunity to improve upon their soccer development and sustain their fitness over the summer months. Our expectation is the WPSL program will give these players the opportunity to carry the experience they have gained from WPSL, both individually and as a team, into their respective fall and spring competitive seasons. The WPSL environment of dedicated, competitive players provides a platform which can motivate and inspire our younger Ohio Galaxies FC club teams as they strive to achieve this same level of success as they progress though our youth club program.
The Ohio Galaxies FC - WPSL team training weekly in the Dayton area at the Athletes in Action Sports Complex and the Ankeney Soccer Complex. WPSL home matches are played at Alumni Field on the campus of Wright State University.
