FC Cincinnati Announces Summer Training Program – FC Cincinnati announced on Tuesday their creation of a Youth Summer Training Program per a release. The summer training program features 80 players participating from six local clubs. Invitees train at Nippert Stadium with coaching instruction provided by Harkes and assistant coaches, Ryan Martin and Jamie Starr. Throughout the remainder of the season, the participants will be able to continue to observe first-team training sessions and attend FCC matches.
