Yorktown FC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to give talented youth soccer players on the Peninsula an opportunity to play and train at a higher level without having to travel to beyond the greater Peninsula area. The club continues to grow and add new teams and great families each year. Given the changes made by US SOCCER in 2016, new teams are formed based upon BIRTH YEAR to comply with state and national mandates and welcome those looking for a great soccer environment.
Yorktown FC features experienced and licensed coaches who volunteer countless hours of their time simply for the love of the game and to instill a similar philosophy in our youth players. All coaches hold a minimum of a USSF E license (or higher) and are always striving to enhance their knowledge of the game. Coaching emphasis includes technical ball skills, understanding the tactical aspects of the game, passion for the sport, and the importance of teamwork both on and off the field.
Practices are held at various fields throughout York County and weekend home matches (primarily Sundays) are played at the beautifully maintained McReynolds Athletic Complex in Grafton. We currently play league matches in the Virginia Soccer League (VSL) against club teams from the Peninsula, Richmond, and Southside. Many Yorktown FC teams also participate in competitive tournaments across the mid-Atlantic region.
Because we are a very dedicated, ALL VOLUNTEER organization, we are able to offer a great soccer experience for a much lower cost than other local clubs. We strive for quality experiences and not just quantity in numbers, both on the field and in the community. We take pride in the realistic approach and understanding that the majority of youth soccer players will find success more so through family, education, and positive social interactions and not just limited to performance on a soccer field.
Yorktown FC simply strives to provide a quality experience, at an affordable cost and with knowledgeable and dedicated coaches, for players and families that want more than just the recreational atmosphere. The philosophy from coaches AND parents is that we are in this for the children involved in the program, not for financial or personal gain, and surrounded in a safe and enjoyable environment for each person involved with the club at every level. We are not only teaching kids a sport, we also want to instill a sense of pride and involvement by giving back to our community at every opportunity.
