Skill Development and Sportsmanship

In our YMCA Soccer League, players have the opportunity to develop their soccer skills while fostering important values such as sportsmanship and fair play. Through engaging practices and competitive games, participants improve their technical abilities, tactical understanding, and teamwork. Our dedicated coaches emphasize the importance of respect, cooperation, and positive interactions on and off the field. Join us to enhance your soccer skills and build character that extends beyond the game.

Family Involvement and Volunteer Coaching

We believe that family involvement is essential to the success of our soccer program. Parents and guardians have the opportunity to contribute to the league as volunteer coaches, creating a supportive and engaging environment for their children. As a coach, you will receive training and guidance from our experienced Branch Sports Directors, ensuring that you feel prepared and empowered to make a positive impact on young athletes. Get involved, make lasting memories, and support your child’s soccer journey.

Convenient Locations and Competitive Opportunities

Our YMCA Soccer League takes place at three convenient locations: Downtown (Owens Field), Jeep Rogers (Lake Carolina), and North West (Irmo). You can choose the branch that best suits your needs and enjoy the convenience of local play. For ages 8-14, there may be opportunities for travel games to other YMCA of Columbia branches, offering a chance to compete against teams from different locations. Join our league to experience the thrill of friendly competition, expand your network, and make new friends along the way.
