Velocity Spotlight brings you behind-the-scenes at Carolina Velocity. Spotlight will feature interviews with staff and coaches, we'll talk with professionals here in the States and abroad, and publish relevant articles and op-ed pieces relating to youth soccer current events and issues.
In our first Spotlight feature, we sat down with the president of the club, Laura Collins, for a chat about her background, her favorite sports team and all things Velocity. Laura discusses what the club has achieved so far in its short existence as well as what the vision is for the future. Enjoy!
"What made you want to become president of the club?
Velocity is a passion project for me. I believe in what we do, and what we can bring to youth soccer in Wake County. Building a soccer club in a highly competitive area like ours certainly comes with its attendant challenges, but I was confident in this club, and I knew that with my professional experience, I could help Andy build the organization and execute plans to set us on a course for success."
