BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Space Coast Alliance hosted a visit from Orlando City Soccer yesterday.
In addition to front office staff, four players conducted a free clinic at Crossing River Sports Club in Rockledge. Rob Valentino, Anthony Pulis, Luke Boden and Jonathan Mendoza spent the evening working with youth players from ages 2 to 16.
“This is great,” Scott Stella said with a smile on his face, “I’m really happy that everyone has come out today.”
Scott is the organizer behind the Space Coast Alliance, a supporter group for the Orlando City Soccer Club. Scott was quick to point out that the Space Coast Alliance is a great fit for all of the soccer fans in Brevard.
“I don’t want anyone to leave The Rukas or the Lion Firm or any other groups,” he said, “We have viewing parties so everyone will have a place to go without having to go all the way to Orlando for away games and everyone is welcome.”
THE LIONS FIRST VISIT TO BREVARD
The Space Coast Alliance is free to join, and t-shirts are available with the Alliance logo at all of their events.
Jonathan Quinter, manager of the Crossing River Sports Club enjoyed the Lions first visit to Brevard.
“I think it’s great to have a Professional Soccer Team in Brevard” Quinter said.
“We’ve been here for about five months so we’re just starting to build up a base,” said Quinter, “We have all ages and times from preschool in the morning on up to adults who like to play late at night.”
The 10,000 square foot club is located on Gus Hipp Blvd between US1 and Murell Rd in Rocklegde. Memberships are available, but not required to play. The club also offers open play several times each week.
Orlando City’s next home game is Friday June 7th at 7:30 against Phoenix FC. CLICK HERE to see the Lion’s schedule.
