Dear Lee County Striker Families,
Hello everyone. I’m hoping coming off a successful campaign with us, you feel better about our process here at LCS. We had some significant programmatic changes and will be announcing more as we continue to build a better, more efficient, effective and creative process to help build more passionate and intelligent footballers and character in the youth in our soccer community.
As our season winds down, we need to acknowledge our teams, players and coaches successes in winning many matches, competitions, cups and most importantly, being on the right side of developing the intellect and passion of our players. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve witnessed great energy, joy, passion and quality in training at Kelly Road. Our club motto of Getting Better Every Day was certainly consistently on display.
In saying that, we also now need turn our attention and focus to tryouts for this upcoming 2019-20 season. They are coming up quickly especially because we have been granted US Club Soccer status as an affiliate and our new partnership with BWP (Black Watch Premier Soccer Club, (website: http://www.bwpsocceralbany.com) who will be helping us improve our overall processes by streamlining key areas in delivering a higher quality program for all of our families.
