The OKC 1889 FC Mission
OKC 1889 FC was created with a vision to have a positive impact far beyond the soccer field. With our guiding ideology of “community first”, our promise is that OKC 1889 will always place the quality of life of our players, fans, staff, and community as our top priority.
Through the game of soccer, OKC 1889 FC will serve the community, encouraging local talent to reach heights they never thought possible. OKC 1889 FC will give proud, committed, dedicated Oklahoma players the opportunity to showcase themselves on a national stage and the chance to follow their dreams. The player environment is designed to give amateur players a professional experience, encouraging the self-respect, sacrifice, and high standards that will serve through not just a career in the game, but in a lifetime of leadership.
As a core grass roots soccer club, OKC 1889 will require all players to get out into the youth soccer community for appearances and soccer clinics. We hope to inspire the next generation to fall in love with the game of soccer, allowing the game to educate and teach life skills. OKC 1889 FC aims to help today’s youth fulfill their full potential as positive members of their communities.
Our future soccer leadership campaigns will impact many youth players by helping to recruit, train, and license adult coaches within the greater Oklahoma City area. All OKC 1889 FC players are required to take United States Soccer Federation coaching courses.
OKC 1889 FC’s core beliefs require RESPECT for the game, it’s players, it’s officials, and its spectators, at all times. We will win with dignity and lose with grace. We show zero tolerance for racism, violence, cheating, or drug abuse. We encourage our players to have fun playing the game, and to “be the leader that makes a leader”.
