"Coach Lee Bakewell is a dedicated professional. He gets the best out of his players, knows the game and teaches his players not only how to be good players but how to be good humans. A pleasure to have worked alongside him. A high level coach and an even better person."
Professional Player at FC Sassari Torres Femminile (Italy)
Troy Universty (Division 1)
I can truly say I would not be the player I am today if it was not for Lee. He held me accountable, expected the most out of me and pushed me to push myself. I played college soccer at Troy University which is a Division 1 University. After college I continued my career to the professional level in Italy. I currently am still in Italy finishing up ny second year professional in the second highest professional division in Italy. Lee was not only a coach but a mentor and a friend. I achieved what I have achieved so with the help of Lee Bakewell.
Youth Development Manager at Institute FC
Lee & I coached together for a number of years in the early mid 2000s. Lee is immensely professional and his sessions are always diligently prepared. He has a really great way with players of different ages and current ability and will tailor his approach to help that individual improve. Lee is "real" and by that I mean fair, open and honest. Any young player will get the most from working with him through collaboration. I can't speak highly enough about Lee on both a personal and professional level.
