Soccer News & Updates

2021 Fall Soccer Registration CLOSED:  


IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING REGISTRATION

Corte Madera Parks & Recreation and Corte Madera Football Club want you to know that registration for Fall Soccer Season is now officially CLOSED. We will not be taking any more registration or friend requests at this time. All teams have been formed and in an effort to maximize playing time and skill development for each player we will not be moving any players. 

Moving players upsets the delicate balance of teams that have already been formed. We have done our best to accommodate 95% of all friend requests and now we need to focus on the most important part of our league, which is to get cleats on the field and have some fun!  We appreciate your cooperation and can’t wait to see you out on the field.


Introducing our new Director of Coaching, Michael Sharp

Michael grew up playing soccer in Glasgow, Scotland, in the UK where he fell in love with the sport. His interests lead him to play competitive soccer throughout his childhood and into adulthood. As a youth player, he traveled to Europe to represent his region at highly regarded youth tournaments in France. He played in college and in a semi-pro league in both Scotland and in England prior to finishing his playing career in the San Francisco Soccer League.

 

Following 7 years working in San Francisco as a management consultant. Michael returned to Scotland in 2004, to take a position with the Scottish Football Association. Michael spent 3 years as a Regional Development Manager with the Scottish Football Association where he was responsible for implementing a national player development strategy in the southeast region of Scotland. Michael returned to the Bay Area in 2007 and became the Director of Coaching with Tiburon Soccer Club. In 2010 he turned his attentions to coaching and worked with both Mill Valley and Marin FC. In 2016 Michael was hired by Marin FC to coach one of the club's US Soccer Development Academy (USDA) team and in 2017 after gaining his A License was asked to coach a USDA boys and an Elite Club National League girls’ team with Marin FC. After many years of traveling, Michael has decided to join his wife and two children at Corte Madera FC this year as their new Director of Coaching.

 

2020 Soccer Review 

This year’s soccer program was our most successful, given all that we had to overcome. It just shows you what can be achieved when everyone works together, Frank Bonardi.

 

Frank and his team of trainers, coaches and volunteers did a fantastic job to make the 2020 season possible. Their hard work, creativity, and attention to changing guidelines for youth sports kept 800 youth players active and safe. The professional trainers did a wonderful job of challenging the players, and keeping them engaged despite not being permitted to scrimmage or play games.

Corte Madera Parks & Rec is sad to see Abe leave CMFC. He has been an integral member of the soccer leadership team and wish him and his wife the very best on their next adventure and some well-earned travel time.
