Growing up playing for the East Bay Soccer Club and his high school, Patrick McCue started coaching early, during High School, for East Providence Rec and AYSO programs. Following college, he took a break from coaching before returning to coach with the Cumberland Youth Soccer in 2008. After a couple more stops he joined Rhode Island Surf in 2020 and has seen plenty of success since including 3rd Place at the 2022 DPL Nationals, two-time Champion of the Jefferson Cup (2022 & 2021), and an appearance in the 2021 USYS Eastern Regionals Qualifier. Most importantly to McCue, he has seen multiple of his players selected to Surf Select National Team and attend ODP East Region Camp over his first few seasons.
McCue believes coaching is about making meaningful connections, leading with empathy, listening to players, managing morale, and most importantly - getting the best out of people, even on the worst days.
