Boerne FC Thunder voluntarily committed to help the Bastrop Youth Soccer Organization as many of their families lost their homes and belongings in the recent fires.
We are proud of the Boerne community who contributed to support Bastrop soccer families in their time of need with “gently used” soccer balls, socks, shorts, shirts, cleats, and shinguards, as well as other clothing items, gift cards, and canned goods. In addition, monetary donations were collected and provided to the Bastrop Soccer Club.

National 'B' License Achieved
Thunder FC is happy to announce David Rosales, Director of Coaching, recently obtained a National “B” Coaching License (National B) from the US Soccer Federation. Obtaining this license is a significant professional accomplishment.
The National B course (consisting of 20 and 46 hours of classroom and field sessions, respectively) is designed to teach concepts targeted toward coaching players age 16 to college level. Those wishing to achieve the license are required to pass a written exam regarding FIFA Laws of the Game and an oral exam pertaining to tactics and methodology. The National B focuses on recognizing the principles of the game and its technical applications in 9v9 game situations. Coaches learn to teach and implement these principles through functional training sessions while demonstrating a better understanding coaching responsibilities at advanced levels.
Congratulations David – children participating in our programs will certainly benefit from your accomplishment and overall leadership. Well done!
