Coaching Staff

Excellent Coaching staff, Experienced Leadership 

FC Alliance has put together and incredibly experienced staff of trainers to work with our ADC Players. These coaches come from some of the most competitive teams in FC Alliance’s older age groups. Our staff has experience coaching at the highest state, regional, and national levels, but, more importantly, are committed to sharing their knowledge with our youngest players. The trainers focus on running excellent practice sessions as the ADC Directors rotate them through different teams and age groups. 

ADC is lead by the two Directors, Filip Leander and Taylor Kuhlman. They oversee the program and coaching staff, and they also circulate through teams working with coaches and players to help get the youngest teams to an elite level.
