We are simple! Practices and games will be the SAME location in Pineville! SAME PLACE for practices and games. We have become aware that other soccer organizations may have multiple locations for games and times that may change throughout the season. Because of this many people ask us if our location may change. The answer is no. Our schedule is simple. Everything is in the SAME location.

Photos from Practice
Our youth soccer team for Ages 5 to 7 will focus on teaching the basics like the appropriate way to pass using the inside of our foot.
We will focus on field awareness. Our objective is to teach our young players how to use the space on the field.
Having more space gives players more time to receive the ball, control it, and make a pass.
SPACE = TIME = QUALITY.
Having the time to receive the ball, control it, and make a pass results in a better quality when doing these things.
We aim to provide a soccer strategic learning experience through age appropriate games/drills the kids will have fun playing.
At each practice, we share our faith with players wishing to hear.
Please remember to wear your soccer gear including cleats, and shin guards. Please bring a water bottle and hand sanitizer.
Our soccer programs are aligned with US Soccer. If you are looking for a similar soccer environment closer to Matthews, we recommend the Brace Family YMCA. If you are looking for a more competitive environment, we recommend the Charlotte Eagles. To see how we’re involved in our community, please visit our Community Support Page.
