NPFC Coach Creed


As a coach of North Port Futbol Club, I will follow the rules and policies of the NPFC soccer program and the Florida Youth Soccer Association.  I will strive to make soccer an enjoyable and positive learning experience for my players and their families.  I will place the health, safety, and welfare of my players ahead of my personal goals or desire to win.  I will respect the individual differences of my players and I will model inclusive behavior, decrying all types of discrimination.  I will strive to maintain and improve my coaching skills and teach my players the Laws of the Game.  I will do my best to plan practices that are fun and challenging.  I will teach my players to strive for success and play fairly.  I will respect my team’s opponents and the game officials and actively encourage my players to do the same.  I will strive to be a model of grace, dignity , and composure in victory as well as defeat and encourage the players to do the same.  I will strive to control the actions of my players, their parents and our fans at all games and scrimmages.  I will promote the interests of soccer with courtesy, honesty, and respect.

Leslie Nottingham, born and raised in Florida, started playing soccer at the age of nine in Miami. Without missing a year, she played with both all-girls and co-eds for local clubs, high school, college intramurals and adult leagues until being forced to take a break to have her first daughter. Then after having her second daughter, she naturally got the girls involved in soccer as soon as possible. Sitting on the sidelines was hard for her to do but transitioned easily to help assisting. Leslie has worked with both Coach Rex Troche (U10G) and Coach Dave McKinley, recently retired.
Leslie and her family (DJ, Abey, and Laci) have been in the North Port area since 1997. Leslie is excited to see the growth and experience being provided to the kids of our club and looks forward to continue passing on the love and discipline of soccer.
