Come Coach with Us

We LOVE our volunteer coaches! Come join the team and inspire young athletes!

Coaches commit to attending one weeknight practice per week and one game each Saturday. FC Richmond will provide all the training you need at one of our coaches clinics, as well as equipment, scheduling, and access to your team using the excellent PlayMetrics software.

When you register your player, you will be asked if you would like to volunteer to head coach or assistant coach your child's team -- coaching discount will be automatically taken from your child's registration fees!

Volunteer Coach Testimonial

Coaching Rec soccer is an incredible way to show up for your child AND your community --

"I never knew how much I would love coaching my son in soccer. Not knowing much about soccer and having other people's children under my leadership terrified me. To be honest, I was fearful of embarring myself and failing my team, but after the season was over the opposite happened!! Not only did our team grow but I grew as a parent. I made great relationships with other parents as well as their kids. To me, the best benefit was how much closer my son and I became. During that time I became my son's hero. Together we faced our fears. We fought together, we overcame together. Those thing created a stronger bond between us that I will forever be grateful for. I will never have to live in regret of not taking the opportunity to coach my child. It's one of the best decisions I've made as a parent." -FC Richmond Rec Parent/Coach U7 Coed

Come join the fun -- we can’t have Recreational soccer without you!
