Although we strive to keep FC Royale fees in line with fees of other soccer clubs in San Francisco, we do not compete on price. We compete on the quality of our overall program and focus on the development of each player. By joining FC Royale, you don’t just join the club, you join the FC Royale family, where independent of age, gender, or ability, we attempt to nurture the highest possible soccer development of each individual player. Provided that a player is interested in soccer and wants to learn and improve, we will deliver the environment for that growth. We only work with coaches that are truly passionate about the beautiful game of soccer, personally played at a high level, have the skill to teach, and possess a genuine desire to coach. Our teams will be compromised of SF residents, with the opportunity to include a maximum of two non-residents per team.
Team formation for our Micro programs happen on a season-by- season basis. Our recreational and competitive programs requires an annual commitment. Please understand that to retain the best coaches, we must ensure they are working with teams on an annual basis. The same dedication and care we offer our players extends to our coaches. We provide them with every opportunity to advance their coaching skills by working closely with them and encouraging their participation in coaching education through the U.S. Soccer Federation.
