Our Coaches

We're coaches who think like educators.

F.C. Horizon coaches are trained professionals who have a passion for youth development - and the beautiful game of soccer.

Our coaches put players first. We create an encouraging, empowering environment and we challenge our players to "go for it" on the field. Our coaches set their egos and winning aside. We use guided discovery to allow players to solve problems and learn from each decision.

Our coaches are educators who value education for themselves. We have regular coach training sessions where we read, watch, learn and grow - which we then pass along to the next generation.

Our coaches lead in the spirit of our philosophy of coaching.

Our coaches teach players an attacking, confident style of play

HOW MUCH TIME?

Parents today are busier than ever. We get that. We design programs that maximize your child's development without sacrificing other family priorities. Many of our players participate in multiple sports and are involved in other extra-curricular activities.

F.C. Horizon Select teams are seasonal and have one practice plus one game per week. Season lengths are 7-8 weeks long during April-May, June-July, Sept-Oct and Nov-Jan.

F.C. Horizon Premier teams play soccer year round but we schedule appropriate breaks throughout the year. Players have two practices per week and those that want more training can participate in our optional Technical Training Sessions, which are open to all players across the club.

We keep travel to a minimum. No driving to Florida or South Carolina for tournaments. We play most games in the NWA area, and have limited travel for tournaments. Most teams travel 1-2 times per season to Tulsa, Kansas City or Little Rock.

F.C. Horizon coaches are trained professionals who have a passion for youth development - and the beautiful game of soccer. Many of our coaches have their own story about the negative impact from on of their youth coaches. We're working hard to break that cycle.

IS MY CHILD GOOD ENOUGH?

Our mission is more than serving only the genetically strongest players...

Keep Reading

You may have heard a bad story or two about a child being told they're "not good enough" to make the team. Club soccer (among other sports) has gained a bad reputation for only serving the most athletically gifted players in their communities.

Our mission is more than serving only the genetically strongest players. Our mission is to develop players to reach their own maximum potential. We recognize what science teachers: that players can peak at different ages, and that success is the result of many life factors, many of which we can improve throughout a youth sports career.

We get creative with team rosters, age groups, extra training sessions, and event selection to make sure our players are right where they need to be developmentally. Some of our teams are extremely competitive, high performance teams that compete in the strongest event divisions. Other teams play in lower divisions, but still focus on the technical development of each individual player so they can reach their maximum potential.

A successful youth soccer experience requires collaboration between the club, player and parent. We all have an important role to play. F.C. Horizon players are committing to do their part: to train with their best effort during practices, to work hard outside of team practices, and to compete with intensity during games. If your player can make those commitments, we will do our part to find the right place for them within the F.C. Horizon club family.
