Southern Tier Futbol Club: Welcome

CLUB PHILOSOPHY

The reasons for forming this club were simple: to create a culture of soccer in our area that would promote high level training of all children in order to raise the level of competition in our area. We feel by doing this we will enable our children to succeed in soccer as well as in life.

The creation of a club culture is the first step to achieving this goal. We strive to teach our players respect for others and themselves, good sportsmanship and teamwork.
