The Glen Shields FC Mission


Our obligation to our membership is to achieve a balance among good sportsmanship, leadership skills and fair play, as well as a commitment to fair competition.

As a Club, our mission is to fulfill our players' needs by becoming an organization committed to the excellence and advancement of the discipline of soccer.

This mission will be accomplished through a commitment to the development and organization of the discipline of soccer, through the continuous betterment of coaching and player development, and through the achievement of championship standards in the teaching of the basic fundamentals of the game, all of which is outlined in the Club's Constitution, By-laws, and Playing Rules.

With the help of our most important asset, the members and volunteers of the Glen Shields Futbol Club and its surrounding community, we will succeed in our mission and establish ourselves as a successful and prominent soccer club and organization.
