[Kings FC no longer exists; they have been rebranded Seacoast United Kings.]
Kings FC, with home base in Framingham, was a premier soccer club serving the metro west area of Massachusetts – founded in 2009.
The Kings’ focus was on individual player growth and team concept; they had a larger coach-to-player ratio than most clubs which creates a personal connection with their players. Beyond soccer, they offered multiple opportunities such as non-soccer training, proper nutrition, physical therapy education as well as fun family events.
Their approach to playing soccer was unique in that very few clubs offer this in Mass (Abbey Villa is another such club). It is a style most commonly known as Total Football: is a tactical way of playing soccer in which any player can take the role of any other player on the field.
So if a midfielder needs to attack or defend then he /she can play that position on-the-fly. No player has a specific role other than the goalie; players are tested physically and need to be comfortable with playing many positions. All players on the field have the technical skill to attack.
While folks can debate this style and it certainly has passionate opinions on both side of the fence, as you select a soccer club for your play you need to understand this style of play. You don’t necessarily want to play the total football style for a couple of years then switch to another club where this is not their style – it’s tough to readjust your game and you want to make sure you are not pigeon holed into a style you’ll regret.
All Kings FC coaches had minimum Massachusetts Youth Soccer E License certified while many any also held NSCAA licenses such as the Regional Diploma, and the Goal Keeping Diploma.
