It is our great pleasure to announce that FC Spokane's new Director of North Idaho will be served by Ashley Rider.
Having joined our club in June, Ashley has become a valued part of our coaching staff and will serve our North Idaho branch by supervising coaching and player development for all of our North Idaho girls and boys teams. Not only does Ashley bring her love and enthusiasm for the game and the club, her wealth of knowledge and soccer experience will truly enhance the FC Spokane program in North Idaho.
Most recently, Ashley has served as President for CDA Adult Soccer Club in Coeur d'Alene, where she serves the community by expanding the playing opportunities in the area. In addition, Ashley also serves the state of Idaho as the ISSA Treasurer, affiliated with US Soccer and FIFA. Ashley has also coached and managed youth soccer programs in Southern California and North Idaho and was named one of Idaho Youth Soccer Association's "Coaches of the Month."
"Serving as the North Idaho Director of FC Spokane is a tremendous opportunity for me to work with a well-established, community-based soccer club that emphasizes player development at all levels. There is huge potential in growing the program for boys and girls throughout our surrounding community and preparing them to shine at the high school level, collegiate level, or wherever they continue playing while with our club," Ashley replied to her new position.
Please welcome Coach Ashley to her new role with the club!
