FC Batavia Success Story: Ty Meagher

ty-meagherOur former player Ty Meagher just signed his first pro contract with Valley United FC! We are incredibly proud of his achievement and his dedication to reaching his dream. Congratulations Ty! Your journey has just begun, and we will be following you every step on the way. You more than deserve this and you are an inspiration for our young Batavians!

We recently asked Ty to share his thoughts on his experience playing for Coach Rick and this is what he said.

“Along my youth soccer journey, I’ve had many coaches. What separates Coach Rick from the others is how he not only develops the entire team but also personally connects to each player specifically offering a way to better themselves on and off the field.”

Being part of Rick’s teams always felt more like a family environment rather than a business. I always felt that he truly cared about my development. It wasn’t always about winning or losing but more of how the team and myself can get better. He gave me the opportunity to experience my first trial where he played professionally in the Netherlands which gave me the confidence to really push myself to play professionally and achieve my goal. Rick always supported me and I’m forever grateful.”

Your support has always meant the world to our entire family. A little piece of you walks on that pitch with him every time. Keep promoting your club and what you do!”

We also know it’s important to hear what other parents might have to say. Ty’s mom, Angie, shared these thoughts with us.

“Thank you just doesn’t seem to be enough! The coach before told Ty ‘Your goal of playing pro is one in a million.’ So in the car I told Ty, ‘Well, someone has to be the one!’ That very next tournament you approached Todd and I and invited us to tryouts. Man was that perfect timing!
