Kickers Partner with Proseal


The Richmond Kickers are pleased to announce their new corporate partnership with Proseal America, Inc., the Title Sponsor of the Richmond Kickers Academy Scholarship Fund for the 2011-12 U.S. Soccer Development Academy season.

“I have to say that I am delighted that Proseal America is able to help support the Richmond Kickers Academy Program,” commented Gari Wyatt, Proseal America Inc. CEO. “When Leigh Cowlishaw first introduced me to the possibility of Proseal America being able to assist the Richmond Kickers, I thought that it would represent an excellent opportunity for Proseal America to become involved not only with the local community, but also with one of the fastest growing sports in the U.S.”

“Through my own son’s involvement with the Kickers Academy, I have witnessed firsthand the tireless efforts that all of the Kickers Academy staff puts into working with our kids,” added Wyatt. “In addition to the quality coaching programs, the Kickers also provide magnificent facilities at Ukrop Park, which when combined represents the perfect environment for them to blossom. Being an avid sports enthusiast myself I understand perfectly just how essential these two components are for helping our young athletes along the way, therefore if our contribution helps just a little it would be deemed a success.”

Fundraising is one of the key areas that U.S. Soccer Federation evaluates Development Academy Clubs and their plans to significantly reduce costs for their top players to compete. With the exception of many fully funded Major League Soccer clubs, the Kickers player fees are below the vast majority of clubs in the league. The Proseal America, Inc. title sponsorship will help offset the costs associated with travel and accommodation for several at-need athletes at the major showcase events that take place across the nation, to provide every player the chance to compete at the highest level.

In addition, Proseal America has provided a customized adidas travel polo for every Kickers Academy player to wear while traveling to away games and showcase events nationwide.

"We are proud that Proseal America has chosen to lead this initiative and look forward to the funds supporting numerous Kickers players in their quest to be the best both on and off the field," added Leigh Cowlishaw, Richmond Kickers Director of Soccer and U-16 Development Academy Head Coach.

The Development Academy is a partnership between U.S. Soccer and the top youth clubs around the country to provide the best youth players in the U.S. with an every day environment designed to produce the next generation of National Team players. The Richmond Kickers Development Academy is one of 78 elite youth soccer clubs who uphold the philosophy of increasing training, less total games and more competitive games, based on U.S. Soccer’s Best Practices utilized by the U-17 U.S. National Team Residency Program.

The Academy also connects National Team coaches directly with the Academy clubs to develop and identify players and coaches for future Youth National Teams. Each Academy team is evaluated by a National Team coach at least ten times each year and each Academy club receives two formal evaluations in over 100 categories each year from National Team staff.
