Soccer is Our Passion
“At Lee County Strikers, we strive to reflect two important beliefs in all that we do. Firstly, we believe that soccer and soccer development is more than a sport. We want to provide the best soccer training possible. We expect our coaches to continue to learn and develop themselves. As an organization, we will encourage that continually. You are invited to explore our website further to learn more about what we offer our teams and players. We strongly feel though that soccer is more than technique and tactics. It’s about learning the value of hard work. It’s about accountability — to your coach, your teammates, and yourself. It’s about respect. It’s about character. These are the qualities that help a player reach their goals. These are also the lessons they should take beyond their playing days, no matter how far that level eventually reaches.
Secondly, we believe that soccer is the greatest game in the world and a privilege to play, watch, or coach. We want our club to reflect that joy and passion. We know that the best at
any sport, skill, or activity have that passion. The best soccer players are constantly with a ball, kicking against the side of the house, juggling in their rooms, practicing turns in the backyard. We want our club to encourage that passion. It doesn’t come from running laps or standing in line waiting to take a shot. It doesn’t come from parents or coaches yelling.
It doesn’t even come from winning games or tournaments. That’s temporary. It comes from a love of the game. There will be different levels of commitment but we want to do our best to foster that excitement. We want our club and training to encourage that passion.
We invite you to explore our website to see more of what we are about and what we offer our teams and our players as a club.”
