Lakeshore Soccer Club has one of the largest Soccer Recreation Divisions in not only Quebec but Canada. We are constantly striving to improve and value each and every member from our players to our volunteer coaches and division managers. Without the fantastic support from our volunteers our program would be nowhere near as successful as it is.
Policy on Maintaining Team Standings
Lakeshore Soccer Club believes player development should not be measured by team standings for Regular House League games. The club believes in individual progression and development which is a decision consistent with the FQSF and many our neighbouring clubs. Competition is still vital to this process and teams will still be encouraged to play to win however promoting the developmental aspect of the sport will remain the number one priority. The club will still continue to hold post season playoffs for U-10 and above.

You play at the rhythm you train at, If you train badly, you play badly. If you work like a beast in training, you play the same way.Pep Guardiola
Our volunteer coaches are a vital cog in the Lakeshore Soccer Club and as such must present the clubs mission, vision and values.
Lakeshore Soccer Club aims to create, develop and enhance the skills, ability, understanding and enjoyment of the game we all love. We strive to support ALL of our players and coaches through quality structured programs and constant availability of technical support.
The Vision of Lakeshore Soccer Club is to be recognised as a model organisation, providing the best quality in soccer developmental programs for all skill levels, recreational, competitive and elite performance players.
Our coaches must ensure that through their efforts, Lakeshore Soccer Club is able to;
- Demonstrate respect, honesty and integrity between coaches, players and parents
- Conduct itself in a fair, credible and trustworthy manner
- Be responsive to the needs of those it serves
- Pursue excellence in all programs and operations
- Promote a safe and fun environment for all participants
- Instil a love and respect for all aspects of the game
- Promote and encourage high standards of sportsmanship and fair play
I don’t believe skill was, or ever will be, the result of coaches. It is a result of a love affair between the child and the ball.Roy Maurice Keane
