It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition of long time Spokane coach, Chaz Valdez to FC Spokane as the Youth Director of Coaching.

Chaz comes from a big soccer family in the Spokane area and has 17 years of coaching experience ranging from recreational soccer to club soccer, at both the select and premier levels. Additionally he brings with him Varsity High School coaching experience. Chaz feels that his strongest attributes are teaching kids to love the game by making soccer fun, supporting and advising coaches, as well as coaching foot skills.

Valdez had a bit to say about his new position- "I played with the foundation of hard-nosed, hard working, creative style soccer for many wonderful years under several well known and respected Spokane coaches. I am excited, and I look forward to working with our coaches and players to bring back exciting, fun to watch, 'pull yourself up by your boot straps' work ethic style of soccer to FC Spokane."
In his free time, Chaz enjoys spending time with his daughter, fly fishing, paddle boarding, attending church, and watching soccer.

"We are excited to bring Chaz into the club. We feel that having someone with the experience that Chaz has will not only improve our youth player development program, but our club as a whole." - FC Spokane Director Jay Vela
