Tennessee Soccer Club has agreed to terms with Lee Company for naming rights of field space located at 214 Gothic Ct in Franklin, TN. In addition, Lee Company’s presence will extend into other club programs including Tennessee SC’s fall and spring tournaments.
With the consistent growth to the area and rising interest in select soccer, the field naming rights deal is part of the club’s plan to provide the best resources for players and coaches. Lee Company Field will be utilized year-round for both winter and summer events.
Gerry Vance, Executive Vice President of Lee Company notes: “Team sports can be such an effective vehicle for developing the minds, bodies, and social skills of our children. One of my favorite quotes is from legendary college basketball coach John Wooden, who said: ‘Sports do not build character. They reveal it.’ “
“Tennessee Soccer Club fosters an environment that reinforces this concept and helps to prepare young people for the real world ahead of them,” says Vance. “In our 70th year of service to the community, Lee Company is proud to support the athletes and families of Tennessee SC.”
“This is an important partnership for so many reasons,” Executive Director Kevin Burk said. “It exhibits the values of our club to serve as a bridge and a connection between our membership and the local business community.
In addition to directly impacting the players and coaches in the club, the partnership will provide Tennessee SC membership a great resource for their personal home and commercial business needs. In 2014, The Tennessean awarded Lee Company as one of Tennessee’s Top Workplaces and they also received the Special Award for Ethics.
“In this matter we asked: How do we make naming rights to a field more than just athletics?” Kevin Burk said. “Our club needs to extend the reach across the community so the legacy is more than just a name. Aligning our club with Lee Company brings another organization into our club that strives for excellence that aligns with our club’s vision and mission”.

The materials also take coaches and players through a step-by-step instruction of each of the exercises (pictures included). Proper warm-up exercises are an important piece to start to set early habits and correct mobility and postural positions.
