Meghan Ryczek joined the Vale coaching team in June of 2020 and is currently the Director of Sprouts and Seedlings.

In addition to being a part of the Vale Coaching Team, Ryczek has been an educator in the East Hampton Public School district for the last 9 years. She spent many years teaching Kindergarten and this past year moved into a Special Educator role. Supporting and developing strong scholar-athletes is a main focus for her.

Ryczek’s coaching experience began in 2009 at Eastern Connecticut State University where she joined her former college team’s coaching staff as the Grad-Assistant. Upon graduating with her Masters, she coached for the East Haddam and East Hampton school districts while starting her teaching career. Ryczek is also actively involved in several adult soccer leagues where she still plays at the competitive level.

Continuing education is important to Ryczek. She is looking forward to growing her Coaching Licenses beyond the Grassroots Level and is pursuing additional coursework in Special Education.

When Ryczek is not in the classroom or on the soccer field, you can find her out running and hiking the Northeast.
