Matt Lee is currently Total Futbol's Director of Coaching and grew up playing soccer in Swindon, England. He currently holds an FA Level One coaching license as well as his USSF "C" License. 


Coaching Experience

After joining Total Futbol in 2011, he served as the Head Coach for the CSC Blast ('95) and Herndon Chaos ('96), guiding both of them to NCSL Division 1 before seeing them through to graduation. 

He currently is the head co-coach of the DMV FC 03/04G Blue (Crush) and head coach of the DMV 05G Blue (Force) and 08G Blue (Eclipse). Both the Crush and Force have already won the 2021-22 VA State Cup Championship in the GU19 and GU18 age groups, respectively. That makes 3 consecutive titles for Matt in the U18G bracket with three different teams.

His recent teams were incredibly successful, with the Herndon Hurricanes Black, (formerly) Herndon Crush, and the Herndon Ajax Black groups reaching the VYSA State Cup Final in 2020-21. Hurricanes Black took home the championship as Matt Lee's second consecutive GU18 title, and the Ajax Black also finished first in the BU13 age group.

Both teams went on to the USYS East Region Championship in the summer of 2021, where the Ajax Black reached the BU13 semi-final.

He also has been on staff with some of Total Futbol's most successful former teams, including the McLean Force ECNL/Green ('96/'97), Vienna Thunder Black/Gold ('98) and Herndon United/Storm ('99) programs. His recently-graduated Herndon Thunder Black ('02) team finished their careers as State Champions in 2019.

Along with his team's overall success, Matt has helped numerous boys and girls continue their careers at the college level. The Class of 2021 sent 4 girls and 5 boys from his teams alone to college programs.
