About FC Edmonds







PLAY LOCAL! FC Edmonds is the home of Competitive Soccer for the Multi-Sport Athlete.

FC Edmonds is a Select Soccer Club serving players predominantly from the Edmonds School District.

We provide a local competitive option for players seeking advanced training and competitive opportunities to develop as soccer players. For those looking to play at the next level after High School, we provide opportunities to be recruited through our College Program. Please see page "College Fit Finder" for more information. We also encourage our players to be multi-sport athletes while still playing at the competitive level with FC Edmonds.

Currently, we begin all teams at U-11 (boys & girls) through High School. There may be birth years that have 2 teams, but this depends on the talent pool at tryouts each May.

Players will always have the option to remain in our top rated Recreational Program with Sno-King Youth Club if not selected for a FC Edmonds team.

All FC Edmonds teams compete in the Washington Premier League (WPL) through US Club Soccer.

System of Play:

At FC Edmonds, we implement a possession based attacking system. Our progressive possession philosophy focuses on playing out of the back, playing through the lines, and creating/finishing scoring opportunities. Defensively, our teams are trained to win the ball back as quick as possible using "team defending", while still maintaining organized defensive shape.

Club Curriculum:

Each team in the FCE System will use SoccerSpecific for all session plans, activities, exercises, etc. Coaches will be setup with a specific login that will give you access to the sessions.

We believe to reach the next level with Player Development, this will give every team and coach the best pathway for ultimate success.

NOTE: We have rolled out specific Curriculum for the following Age Groups:

-U-11 & U-12
-U-13 & U-14
-U-15 (High School Age Groups)

It will be mandatory for U-11 through U-14 teams to use Soccer Specific every Tuesday evening starting at the beginning of the season following Tryouts. The Director of Soccer will ensure Coaches are following the Soccer Specific Curriculum for ultimate player development. The sessions can be tweaked as needed with creativity and based on your numbers, but overall theme must be followed. This curriculum focuses on an attacking style of play based on a 4-3-3 formation with room to adapt as needed.

High School age-groups will be encouraged to also follow the curriculum, but isn’t mandatory.

Beginning with the Fall 2022 Season, it is the expectation that all FC Edmonds Teams follow the FCE Pathway to ensure the most successful competitive experience.
