Meghan Frey has been involved in the Long Island soccer community for more than 15 years, having spent time with the Long Island Rough Riders and more recently New York Surf.

Now, Frey is joining Long Island Soccer Club (LISC) as its Girls’ Development Director and will also serve as the club’s Academy coach for the Girls’ DA 2004 and 2005/2006 teams.

A graduate of Mercyhurst University, Frey most recently served as Director of Coaching with New York Surf and prior spent 15 years as a coach and managing director with the Long Island Rough Riders, a partner organization to LISC.

“I am excited to join the Long Island Soccer Club technical staff,” Frey said. “I am looking forward to contributing to the development of young female players from the club level, to the U.S. Development Academy and beyond.”

Frey’s career as a player and coach spans more than 20 years and her proven track record is a result of her player-first coaching philosophy. That ethos culminated in 2015 when she coached her U-14 Rough Riders team to a Super-Y League National Championship at IMG Academy.

As a player, Frey was a two-time All-American at Mercyhurst in Erie, Pa., won the W-League National Championship with the Boston Renegades, and played professionally with the New York Power and Bristol City of the English Premier League where she also coached at the Academy level.  She has coached collegiately at St. John’s University and Dowling University, and with the Rough Riders Women’s W-League team.

“Meghan’s extensive resume and success speak volumes to her commitment in player development throughout Long Island,” said Gary Book, LISC’s Director of Coaching. “We are beyond excited to have Meghan onboard as we continue our efforts to provide girls the highest level of opportunity to develop and improve their game.”
