Bolts Announce Expansion


The FC Boston Bolts are thrilled to announced the expansion of our Bolts organization

in the following regions for the 2017-2018 season

Everett, MA: Head Coach Marco Meireles, and his Brazilian United FC, have partnered with the FC Boston Bolts to create an exceptional soccer opportunity for the tremendously talented players in the Everett region. The FC Boston Bolts Brazilian United Region, as it will be called, will begin its tenure with two teams age U13 (birth year 2005) and U11 (birth year 2007). According to Meireles, “Bolts have a long history of developing college and professional players. I want to provide the incredibly talented players from the Everett area the opportunity to become US Soccer Development Academy players. The Bolts are not only the best Academy in New England, but they have a specific player progression pathway. I now can tell my players that with hard work, dedication, and continued skill development, they have a pathway available to them to become Academy players, and beyond.”

Tryouts for FC Boston Bolts Brazilian United will be Monday, June 12th from 6-9 PM at Everett Memorial Stadium. For more information please reach out to Coach Meireles at

Cape Cod, MA:  The Bolts are excited to have Sam Viana, a current Bolts soccer and futsal coach, bringing the superior player development program of the Bolts, to Cape Cod! The FC Boston Bolts Cape Region, based out of Dennis, MA, will field competitive teams from U8 (birth year 2010) through U12 (birth year 2006).   “There are many high quality soccer players here on the Cape, that have not had the opportunity to be seen because of the distance from most high level competitions.  There are certainly many Academy-level players in this area” says Sam, “and the Bolts will now give them the opportunity to showcase their talents and develop into exceptional soccer players.”  The Bolts have found a way to bring this opportunity to a very deserving community.  We are thrilled to have Sam launching this region!

Explosion FC Partnership, Attleboro, MA: FC Boston Bolts proudly welcome the opportunity to begin our relationship with Explosion FC. “I am really excited to work along side Julius and his staff, sharing ideas and giving his players a pathway as they move through the club,” says Brian Ainscough, Executive Director of FC Boston Bolts. The Bolts are partnering with Explosion to help support their technical training, share best practices, and offer their most talented players a pathway to ECNL and Development Academy opportunities. Explosion players will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in consideration for ECNL and Development Academy teams.

The two clubs have many key factors in common, including a focus on developing exceptional soccer players, while providing ‘off the field’ personal growth and life lesson opportunities. Julius Summerville, the founder and leader of Explosion FC states, “The most important thing for these kids is to provide them the right training, and the right level of competition, at the right time in their development. The Bolts organization offers our players a pathway for progression including ECNL, US Development Academy and also PDL (Player Development League) opportunities. They have growth opportunities at every stage of player development; now Explosion players have access to this pathway.” This is just the beginning of the partnership between Explosion FC and FC Boston Bolts. As the year progresses, both clubs will be identifying further synergies that may be leveraged between the two organizations.
