CSC Pride Soccer Program

The Columbia Soccer Club's competitive program is known as CSC Pride.  Our Pride teams compete in competitive leagues and tournaments.  Our Club is dedicated to providing the highest level of coaching and training available anywhere. 

As players move from our Academy program to our Pride program, our focus shifts to more advanced training and tactical development.  Our goal is to prepare players to compete at the highest levels in high school and college soccer.  Learn more about Pride soccer below.


Why Play for CSC Pride?

Columbia Pride offers access to the most accomplished staff in Mid-Missouri, with the majority of our coaches being former collegiate athletes and/or current collegiate coaches.  As a non-profit organization, the Club offers affordable fees and a private training facility- Pride Park.

 Pride Park consists of approximately 50 acres and has an estimated commercial value of approximately $7 million.  The Club currently has 5 fields developed (3 with lights) and plans to add 4 more fields by 2015.

The Club is dedicated to building soccer at all levels and is comprised of a Board of Directors who provide oversight and management of the Club.  The Board ensures greater accountability for coaches, players and parents.
