AVID Soccer News: James Parry

James Parry

I started playing organized soccer back in the UK when I was 8 years old. The highest level I reached was playing for Liverpool FC U15/U16 team.


I have been coaching soccer for just over 10 years. I began at the grassroots level, working for and representing Liverpool FC in local schools and communities to gain as much experience as I could. I soon went on to Direct Soccer Camps for LFC across the UK and Europe.


As a coach, my greatest honor and achievement has been working with Liverpool FC’s Academy U16 and U18 teams. I coached some of the best young soccer players in Britain. During this 2 year period, I helped develop a team that reached the Final of the FA Youth Cup. Many of the boys are now professional soccer players, and have represented their Countries at International tournaments.

Most recently I have been employed by Fulham FC, focusing on Talent Identification. This involves recruiting elite youth soccer players from across the Globe.  I’m still today actively seeking to identify talented USA based players for Fulham FC in the English Premier League.


I am presently a CalSouth ODP coach. I have also been a special guest presenter at the last two annual SoccerNation Expo shows.  My current Soccer Club is the DMS11 Academy. It is a development club that focuses on preparing players to play at the highest level.  I coach the Boys U12 team. At DMS11 we also offer private group and individual training.
