Eastern Lions Junior Soccer Club provides young players with:
First class training facilities
Highly qualified, motivated and experienced coaches that utilise the best soccer drills
A Summer School is run to help players during the off season
A focus on player development, improvement and team spirit
A structured soccer training program that provides a pathway for players to develop to the highest levels possible
Our Vision Statement
During the past 50 years the Eastern Lions Soccer Club has embraced junior teams in every age category to ensure each and every child in our community not only has the opportunity to train with our FFA accredited and skilled coaches regularly, but to also ply their craft weekly during games to enhance their development and enjoyment of this universally beautiful game.
We deliver age and ability appropriate sessions for all genders that keep pace with the constant changes in the modern game whilst implementing our enthusiasm, strong values and beliefs that the game itself teaches life skills and respect for all, alongside skills learnt on the pitch.
The game in its purest form is itself the true teacher, and the dedicated coaches and staff at our prestigious club play a subordinate role to ensure all juniors develop to their maximum potential in a safe and caring environment whilst at the same time enjoy their achievements, both collectively and as individuals before embarking on their lifelong journey within, or alongside the true world game.
