The Lions Soccer provides young players with the opportunity to play at the highest level and promotes a lifelong love and appreciation of the game. In doing so, the Lions Soccer helps instill key values – hard work, team work, commitment, cooperation, sportsmanship, and the importance of community – that will serve players equally in their lives on and off the field.
What sets the Lions Soccer apart from other clubs and organizations is its philosophy of long-term player and team development and the emphasis on technical skills.
At the beginning of each year, players are asked to sign a letter affirming their commitment to the team, to practicing at home, to doing their best in school, to good sportsmanship and a positive attitude, and to respecting their parents, who make their participation possible. Parents are asked to sign a similar letter, and affirm that they will act as role models for their children and help them fulfill their promises. The level of commitment is graduated and age appropriate.
The Lions Soccer coaching philosophy focuses on long-term player development and mastering the technical and tactical skills that are the foundation for good soccer.
