The GCFA Center of Excellence is designed to facilitate the acquisition and application of technique in a variety of game situations, in an effort to improve the situational awareness and problem solving capabilities of young players. Game intelligence is paramount at the highest level, so we have designed a training methodology to incorporate the cognitive aspect of the game in conjunction with a technical foundation. Our goal is to develop high level players in the South West Florida area.
The GCFA School of Excellence for Lee County Strikers will be run by FGCU Men's Associate Head Coach, Sheldon Cipriani (Cip) and FGCU Men's coaching staff.
Coach Cip brings a wealth of knowledge and coaching experience from youth, amateur, collegiate and professional levels throughout the southeastern United States. A native of Trinidad & Tobago, he has served as a USSF Development Academy Director, was a Head Coach for VSI Tampa's PDL, and assistant coach for the professional team, as well as coaching director at a number of other clubs throughout the United States.
