Mission:
Coach Tom loves being a contributing part of developing his young athletes and sharing his passion for the game. His coaches growing up gave him a lasting impression that he will never forget and he only hopes his players will say the same about him years down the road.

FC United is the leading youth soccer club on the North Shore because of their direct pathways for players of all ages and abilities. Being granted Academy status gives players something to strive toward. No matter what team you are on, you are sure to have top level coaching and a positive environment to play and practice in. FC United players become family.

Coach Tom Piece of Advice:
"Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect." Make sure that the intensity of your practice is just as high as when you play games. Practice is where you improve the most. Your performance at practice can directly influence your performance during games.
