All FC Royale coaches have played collegiate or professional soccer and are capable of demonstrating skills, movement, and positioning in a way that models the proper form for FC Royale players. These hands-on interactions inspire the kids, not just by their demos in practice, but through what each coach has achieved on and off the field. Our qualified coaches provide the same commitment and investment in each child, regardless of skill level or experience.

Our club takes its relationship with your child seriously. Coaches work to find a connection with each player, no matter the personality type, and ignite what motivates them. When players know their coach is vested in them and not just results, that bond raises the level of engagement, play, and fun.

DAVID NOII - DIRECTOR OF COACHING

David leads with his passion for the game. After playing professionally and working with various soccer clubs in the area, he recognized the need for a club centered around quality soccer, that didn’t sacrifice playing style for results. This led to the formation of FC Royale in 2014 with his wife, Alexis. When he’s not on the soccer field, he can be found sampling ice cream, cheering for AC Milan, or chasing his two young daughters around – sometimes all at once.
