Club History

The Vardar Soccer Club of Michigan

The Vardar Soccer Club of Michigan is dedicated to the development of excellence and sportsmanship in its members and is the top soccer club in the state of Michigan.
We have earned the reputation on a nationwide basis of consistently producing winning teams. No matter where our teams may travel, they receive immediate recognition.

Vardar is large enough to offer opportunity and challenge to the gifted child (male or female). Yet Vardar is small enough to take a personal approach, giving each child the kind of immediate and direct guidance that is carefully tailored to their individual needs.

The objective of our club is to provide an environment to maximize individual talent within a team concept and at the same time assist parents in developing the tools necessary for their child to succeed in life.

Since 1982 Vardar has produced exceptional players and teams with the highest individual and team records.

As the sport or youth soccer in the United States continues to grow and evolve, the nature and role of the youth club must also change. As philosophies of player and team development are refined, it is necessary for club leaders to create the best possible learning and competitive environment for their players.

Therefore, we are very excited to announce the formation of the Vardar Soccer Club. The Vardar Soccer Club will provide an opportunity for all players to compete at their highest level and receive the best training and instruction in the state of Michigan.

Coach Morris Lupenec, with his hand picked staff of soccer professionals, have established a standard of excellence that is evident on the field and nationally recognized. Morris Lupenec has combined traditions of soccer success and proven player development into the Vardar Soccer Club. It is his vision that the Vardar Soccer Club will be successful at the State, Regional and National levels.

With the most qualified and experienced coaching staff in the Midwest, the Vardar Soccer Club guarantees that all the players will receive age-appropriate training and coaching which will allow them to become the best player they can be.

The Vardar Soccer Club will create a family atmosphere for player and parent participation that is second to none and utilize state-of-the-art facilities that are conveniently located throughout Southeastern Michigan.

Individually, coach Lupenec and the dedicated staff have enjoyed your trust in the past and together anticipate your confidence in the future. We invite you to experience the evolution of youth soccer by joining us at the Vardar Soccer Club.
