Coach Dan Larkum

Program Assistant Coach and Offensive Specialst/Analyst

Coach Larkum joined the Farmington High School Boys Soccer Staff in 2023 as an esteemed alumni of the program.  Coach Larkum brings a great deal of experience as a player and coach and a true passion for Farmington Soccer. Coach Larkum looks forward to helping all players reach their potential on and off the field.  

Coach Larkum will work with all three teams in the program and focus on helping them improve the offensive aspects of their game by instilling confidence, improving movement off the ball, enhancing individual technique, enriching patterns of play, and building team cohesion.  He is a technology expert who will be working with the coaching staff and players to break down film, scout opponents, create scouting reports, and more.

In 1998, Coach Larkum made the Farmington High School Boys Varsity Soccer team as a freshman.  He played varsity soccer for four years under legendary coach Steve Waters.  During his senior year at Farmington High, his team was nationally ranked as high as 13th in the nation, had an undefeated regular season, and were state finalists. 

Two years after graduating from FHS, Coach Larkum wrote the varsity team a letter prior to their championship match. In the letter he made it clear that win or lose, Farmington soccer is eternal.  He went on to say that Farmington Soccer players play with the pride and the support of their teammates and with every former player of the program and every player that will come in the future.  Coach Larkum still believes this to be true today.  After years of rooting for Farmington Soccer, he joined Farmington Soccer Club as a coach in 2016 where he took the opportunity to educate and shape young players.  During his six years coaching the 2008 Boys Farmington Travel Team they went to the finals four times winning three state cups. 

Coach Larkum has been a Farmington resident since 1990.  Growing up he played for the Farmington Soccer Club, top premier club teams, and the Olympic Development Team for the State of Connecticut and regionally. In October of 2021, Coach Larkum was hired by Farmington Public Schools as the AV/ Digital Media Coordinator. 

Coach Larkum is deeply rooted in Farmington Soccer and his passion, commitment and success on and off the field makes him a great addition to the coaching staff. We look forward to having him assist on making everyday a great day for Farmington Soccer!
