Club Welcomes Skye Linkous and Ann Marie Chao as Co-Directors of the Fury Futures Program

Fayetteville, NC – Fayetteville Fury is excited to announce the appointment of Skye Linkous and Ann Marie Chao as the new Co-Directors of the Fury Futures Program. Their combined expertise and passion for soccer will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of young athletes in our community.

Skye Linkous brings a rich background in sports, coaching, and community involvement. Hailing from Watertown, New York, her diverse experience spans across dance, Tae Kwon Do, and multiple school sports, leading to her profound involvement in soccer as a parent and coach. Skye's move to North Carolina in 2010 marked the beginning of her significant contribution to local soccer, including coaching stints at NZone and Freedom Christian Academy. A certified first aid, AED, and NFHS coach, Skye’s commitment to nurturing young talent and fostering a love for soccer is unwavering. Her personal journey with the sport and her desire to create a positive impact make her an invaluable asset to the Fury Futures Program.

Ann Marie Chao's journey in sports is equally inspiring. Raised in Syracuse, New York, she was a multi-sport athlete from a young age, participating in soccer, lacrosse, competitive swim, and more. Ann Marie’s leadership skills were honed through her roles at various camps and as a veteran of the United States Navy stationed in San Diego, where she continued to engage in competitive sports. Moving to North Carolina brought her closer to family and the local soccer community, where she has been coaching youth teams with dedication. As a NFHS certified coach with U.S. Soccer Grassroots, CPR, and First Aid certifications, Ann Marie’s extensive experience and commitment to youth development are set to enrich the Fury Futures Program.

Together, Skye and Ann Marie will lead the Fury Futures Program with a focus on developing homegrown talent, fostering a culture of excellence, and ensuring soccer is accessible to all. Their leadership will enhance our mission to provide a nurturing environment for young athletes to grow, compete, and embrace the beautiful game.

Fayetteville Fury is proud to have Skye Linkous and Ann Marie Chao join our team. We look forward to their contributions and the bright future they will help build for our young athletes.
