Tormenta Soccer

When it comes to fast-paced excitement, nothing beats a day spent cheering on South Georgia’s homegrown all-stars, Tormenta FC. Whether it’s the next generation of talent honing their skills at the academy or the world-class players in their USL League one and two teams, these magnificent athletes never fail to make Georgians proud.

You’ll find players from all over the world on the rosters at Tormenta FC, representing eleven different countries. These are the players you’ll see on draft day, making their mark in Statesboro before being called up to join the legends of the game as part of MLS. And their academy has gained well-earned acclaim for molding the soccer stars of the future in a fun, yet highly competitive, environment.

And Optim Orthopedics is proud to have been a part of Tormenta FC from day one. Our name has been front and center on their jersey for a reason – this is a team that shares our passion for excellence. But the relationship goes far beyond just a logo on the chest. You’ll find two skilled experts, Dr. Don Aaron and Dr. Tad Wilson, right there on the field as the official team physicians.

“Simply put, Tormenta doesn’t play if it wasn’t for our relationship with Optim,” said Team President Darin Van Tassell. “They’re part of our team, there every time we practice, every time we train.”
