TFCA is a nationally known youth soccer program which prides itself on developing players to reach their maximum potential.

Recreational Soccer is a great way for those looking to get started in the sport and TFCA is proud to offer this program to the children in Greater Triangle Area.  The program is a fun and instructive way for kids to learn about the wonderful game of soccer.

Why should you play in this Recreational Program?

•             Fun and Enjoyment

•             Progressive Training Curriculum and Structure (centered around positive learning environments)

•             Parental Involvement (great way to share the experience with your child)

Volunteer Coaching

TFCA depends on parents' participation as volunteer coaches in our recreation program. Our recreation program is VOLUNTEER COACHING BASED. We strive to have 2 volunteer coaches per team. We provide a preseason coaching clinic to all our coaches and we also provide a curriculum for the season. In addition we provide coaching support with TFCA Directors, Staff, and Railhawks players during weekday practices for our U7-U9 program and on weekends with our U4-U6 programs. With TFCA training, guidance and support, coaching a TFCA recreation team is fun, enjoyable and rewarding. Remember, without you our volunteer, there is no TFCA.

Please contact Derek Lang, Recreation Director, at to become one of our volunteer coaches.
