The club’s technical program creates a learning environment for its players by engaging them to think and understand their decisions in regard to the main four moments in the game of soccer.
Our “player-centric” philosophy coupled with a progressive methodology by our technical staff supports a player’s enhanced performance in a collective environment.
South Fort Myers Soccer Club was founded in 1986. Soon after the Lee County Strikers competitive club was started as a separate entity from South Fort Myers Soccer Club.
1991 saw the opening of Kelly Road Soccer Complex and both organizations relocated to it as their home fields, this is still our home to this day. By the mid 90’s the two groups joined together to form Greater Fort Myers Soccer Club, Lee County Strikers Competitive division.
Through the late 1990s, the club grew to over 850 players with over 30 competitive teams and has served the community and families of SWFL since.

Our coaches are unique because they look at soccer as a pathway to success. They see the value of the game and how it plays a significant role in changing player’s lives. We all come from different countries and regions but have the same feeling for soccer, it has changed our lives for the better.
We have been influenced and shaped by the game to give of ourselves better fathers, community members and to give back to the youth in making our community better and stronger. We all look at soccer as our passion and have a pure love of the game, but are keenly aware how it has helped us to build relationships and all get to where we are today….
