Technical Director - High Performance : Division 1 (U11-U15), Metro (U16-U18), BCSPL
Lee was born in Aberdare, Wales and from an early age he had stints at both Cardiff City and Luton Town, also representing Wales at several different levels and ages.
Later, Lee joined the military, while playing soccer back at home at every opportunity. When family matters changed, Lee chose to remain closer to home and joined the Welsh Police Force. The South Wales Police FC and Welsh Police soccer teams both recruited Lee to come play for them, where they travelled the world for games and had many great successes over the years.
After several visits, Lee immigrated to Canada. He quickly became involved in the soccer community and started coaching in several clubs throughout the Lower Mainland. These clubs include Vancouver Whitecaps FC, BC Soccer, Mountain United FC, North Shore soccer development center, North Shore Girls FC, Play Active School Soccer (PASS), and his own elite soccer school, Europa Soccer Academy. Lee played soccer with the Vancouver Police Department and has represented BC Police in the North American Championships.
Lee helped the Canadian U15 women’s national team win a CONCACAF gold medal as an assistant coach along with winning Mountain United’s very first National gold with his 2003 Girls team.
Lee currently lives on the North Shore with his partner, daughter and three sons. He enjoys soccer daily for work and does charitable work as well in his free time. Since arriving to Canada in 2008 Lee has also donated his time & skills to charity-based programs in both schools and women’s shelters throughout the Lower Mainland and has since become associated with Canada SCORES Vancouver both as a board member and now ambassador.
