“After speaking with the LMVSC Executive Director, (Lula Bauer), President, (John Salamone), and Technical Director, (Fabien Lewis), I was impressed with the investment they are making for the kids in their club.  I am attracted to the diversity within the Club and their dedication to providing quality programs for the community.  Lee Mount Vernon Sports Club is growing and looking toward the future.  That’s something I wanted to be a part of.  I see some really good things happening with the LMVSC and am happy to be helping with programs and services for the LMVSC community,” said Bob Bigney.

Bigney entered the youth soccer ranks in 1996 and has served in several director-level roles with clubs in Virginia, Oregon, New Mexico, and Texas.  Most recently, Bigney spent the past four years as the Director of Youth Soccer with El Paso Locomotive FC in Texas.
