3Step Sports, a youth sports club and event operator, has purchased BEST FC Soccer Club, a youth training and development organization.

BEST (Best English Soccer Training) FC began as four summer camps in central Massachusetts in 1999. The business grew to year-round training clinics and partnerships with several town soccer programs in the area. The organization has expanded from just one girls soccer team to 30 teams and continues to run recreational camps and clinics as well as town player and development programs throughout the year.

“Money shouldn’t be a reason why a kid doesn’t play,” states Paul Mumby, a founder of BEST FC. “Each year, we have allocated $50,000 for scholarships across our programs and we take pride in giving back and being a big part of our local community.”
