About Vélez

Posted by Miguel Nuila at Feb 16, 2007 4:00PM PST ( 0 Comments )

Vélez is part of the Lower Merion Soccer Club based in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Players are from birth years 1991 and 1992. Our goal is simple: to play the beautiful game beautifully and have fun doing so. Avant-garde play is encouraged. Creativity and individual flair are nurtured and valued.

Our players come from six counties around the Philadelphia metropolitan area and our players represent nine different nationalities. Twelve of the twenty two boys on the roster have been on the team since U11. The team was initially formed in 1999 as the LMSC U8 Developmental Squad. There are four veterans from that squad still on the team.

We placed 3rd in Nationals (U17), won three EPYSA state cups, the USYSA National League (U17), the Region 1 Colonial League in 2007, the Region 1 Premier League in 2008 and the Region 1 Tournament in 2008. Along the way we also won numerous tournaments and league titles. We have five team members currently playing in the EPYSA Olympic Development Program and three on the Region 1 teams.

The character and culture of Vélez is a reflection of the values of its Coaches. It is through this vision that the team has come to see soccer as a vehicle for life and to play the game with joy and a reverence for its complexity. Vélez and soccer have given many of the young men on the team academic, social, and economic opportunities they might not otherwise have enjoyed.
