For Immediate Release:

Indianapolis, Indiana (April 30, 2020) – River Plate Indiana is pleased to announce their partnership with locally based Komets Soccer Club. By combining forces between Komets and River Plate Indiana, the group will make a long-term investment in player development, high-quality coaching, and training facilities, which will create the best soccer experience both on and off the field. The project commonly referred to as Komets-River Plate will begin tryouts June 22nd, 2020.

The fusion of these two clubs was crafted with the purpose of elevating the youth soccer experience in central Indiana. Komets SC brings a large recreation, academy, and travel program foundation, while River Plate Indiana will lead the development, training, and coaching through the River Plate philosophy.

River Plate Indiana brings the incredible resources and training philosophy from the professional soccer club of River Plate Argentina.River Plate is not just a team, it is an institution of soccer, and is the only club in the world with all educational levels. Komets- River Plate players will be provided with highly decorated trainers and coaches from River Plate.

“It is an honor and incredible opportunity to partner with such a well-established club like Komets SC,” said River Plate Indiana Principal Ricardo Juncos. “For River Plate Indiana this is a huge step forward into developing River Plate into the United States. We are grateful we have the ability to bring the philosophy and coaching staff of River Plate to Indiana. Through the Komets-River Plate project we will imply the same philosophy, training styles, and the focus for players on and off the field that River Plate Argentina has created over many years. We have coaches, trainers, and goal keepers from the River Plate Argentina team that have already come on board. I am really excited for this new adventure and opportunity to give players the tools and knowledge they will need to excel on and off the field.”

Dave Davis, the President of Komets Soccer, says, “Komets is looking forward to continuing our long-held tradition of focusing on the kids and helping develop them to their highest potential.”

Komets-River Plate will be a continuation of all existing programs from Komets Soccer and adding new development and training opportunities as time goes on.

While monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, the Komets-River Plate program will immediately begin conducting virtual soccer development training and exercise classes until players and staff can safely return to the field. For more information, please visit www.komets.org or riverplateindiana.com

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the Komets River Plate Partnership

Below are some common questions that club members and interested parties may have. If your question or concern is not addressed, please email [email protected].

1. Why is this happening and what is the rationale behind the partnership?

    • There will be a limited number of players merged together for the fall 2020 season. We are anticipating many new players at tryouts, giving us the opportunity to form new teams.

2. As a current player, what happens next?

    • Current River Plate Indiana travel players will need to sign up for the upcoming Komets-River Plate tryouts on June 22, 2020. Current Komets SC players do not need to do anything.

3. Will there be a new website?

    • Eventually, there will be a new website. We will make the switch as seamless as possible for all parents and players.

4. Will the name of the club change?

    • We will begin referring to our combined club as “Komets River Plate” but all players will be registered with Indiana Soccer under Komets SC. The “Komets River Plate” name was chosen as a joint effort to include the incredible training resources afforded to Komets SC by River Plate Indiana.

5. Will the club logo change?

    • The River Plate logo and Komets SC logo will both be featured on uniforms, websites, and promotional materials. 

6. What happens to the large Komets SC recreational soccer program?

8. As an existing travel or academy player, do I have to purchase a new uniform?

    • We are working our uniform supplier to determine all of our options, and we will let affected players know as soon as possible what needs to be done.

9. Will registration fees be changing?

    • Recreational soccer prices will not be changing this year. However, travel and academy prices will be following a slight pre-planned increase. The increased fees directly correlate with the quality of coaching and training options available.
