LNSC Mission Statement
"The Lake Norman Soccer Club strives to create a balanced and comprehensive experience through a competitive soccer environment."
Eclipse Elite Goals
• Build a unique and strong community of diverse individuals with common goals  • Instill a high standard of work ethic, expectation and self respect in all players • Create a holistic training environment • Provide players and families with the resources and opportunities required to reach their individual goals
LNSC introduced its Eclipse program in 2008. At the time, this was an ambitious move by a small club of just 250 players. Eight years later, the effects of this initiative are visible throughout Lake Norman Soccer Club and girl’s soccer in the state. LNSC has grown by over 500% and its Eclipse teams have won numerous national and international competitions, fielded state champions, sent a higher percentage of its players to play in college than any other club in North Carolina and raised the bar for girl’s soccer in the area. It is well know that LNSC is considered one of the major programs for girl’s soccer in the state and region. 
But, it’s also true that the national landscape of youth soccer has changed a great deal in the last eight years. The standard for top-level training and competition has increased. And with the advent of numerous new leagues and programs, the “noise” for parents and players to sort through in choosing the right club and program to be a part of has become increasingly distracting. 
With this in mind, we are pleased to announce the development of LNSC’s newest and most extensive program ever – LNSC Eclipse Elite. The Eclipse Elite program is a top-level player development program designed for the most committed and serious players. In this program, players will train in a professional environment that focuses on total player development that includes: Technical Soccer Development Development of Superior Tactical Understanding Athletic and Physical Development Mental and Psychological Development
The Eclipse Elite program will allow players and teams to compete in the highest-level national leagues, tournaments and events. Players will have opportunities to gain national exposure and next level player identification and promotion will be a key component of the Eclipse Elite program.
