Steve Cavalier, Founder, Executive Director

Steve is a Level A-licensed USSF coach -- the highest non-pro level.


"Looking back to see who have been some of the most influential people in my life, I find it's been my soccer coaches. Not only did they teach me soccer, they instilled in me a work ethic, professionalism, leadership, an understanding of how to win and lose, of how to work in groups, of how to take care of my body, nutrition, etc. These are not only characteristics that make good soccer players, but also the very fabric that makes successful people, and I want to provide an opportunity to learn this to everyone... not just those who can afford it."

For Delaware Rush: Director of Youth Development (U3-U10), Rush Select Coach, Director of Summer Camps (all ages, instructional), Director of Coaches for Instructional (U8-U10), Sponsorship and Marketing Fundraising lead, and the lead on Winter Programming.

For Delaware FC: Head Coach, 2003 Boys.

For the Philadelphia Union: Talent Identification Scout.

The Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is small by design. We believe that while there has to be guidance, it's important for an organization such as FSS to include, harness, and partner with the local community to help enrich its programs for kids. Participation helps anchor and protect.

Each of its members play an important strategic role. And as Steve reminds us when we make decisions, "It has to be about the kids."
