Nike Recognizes LNSC as a Nike Premier Club!

Date Posted: 5/6/2014

Lake Norman Soccer Club is proud to announce that it has been chosen as a Nike Premier Club beginning this Fall. We are one of a select group of clubs across the country that has been selected by Nike. LNSC is one of seven clubs in the Southeast region and one of two clubs in the states of North & South Carolina. What this relationship means is, Nike are committed to providing the club with a higher quality level of service to ensure the best possible environment and professional appearance of our players and coaches. Training equipment, uniforms, coaching gear, and access to Nike resources are a major immediate benefit of this relationship. As a member of this elite group of youth soccer clubs, Lake Norman upholds the highest level of professionalism and quality and will have many advantages and privileges. As such, all LNSC members are afforded showcase opportunities that enhance their soccer experiences. Nike will also grant access to brand resources such as Elite 2.0 Training (used by US National Team) as well as opportunities to receive invitations/tickets to US National Team events. You will notice the new Nike Premier Club badge attached to LNSC documentation and gear this coming Fall.

Stephen Chaconas, LNSC Technical Director, had this to say:

“The recognition from Nike is just another step in the right direction for LNSC as whole. Providing the best possible soccer environment for our players is always our top goal and Nike has recognized us a group committed to excellence and professionalism in this regard. Our players should really enjoy the increased Nike presence around the club.”

Nike had this to say about its Premier Club status:

“Nike Premier Clubs are a designation available to no more than 80 clubs across the United States. As a Nike Premier Club, LNSC will have access to Nike's vast resources such as Nike ID camps, coaching support, and education for our staff. In addition, LNSC top teams will have preferred access to the top youth soccer tournaments in the United States, including, among others, the prestigious Surf Cup in San Diego (California), Jefferson Cup (VA), and the Dallas Cup. These tournaments will give the Club's top athletes exposure to the premier collegiate soccer programs in the country.”
