Click here to launch a video that shows why "CITY is unique- Our core philosophies'.

Welcome to CITY. Our goal is to develop each individual player in the club to better play the game of soccer.  We strive to develop and prepare players for the demands of competitive soccer at both the local, regional and national levels. 

CiTY players are coached by licensed professional coaches. CiTY plays in multiple leagues and teams are matched up in the appropriate levels.

Many teams will compete in the Club Champions League as well as other local leagues that work best for our teams and players. 


Our club philosophy is built on the following three core values: 

  • We are soccer people serving soccer families
  • We serve every playing level including special needs 
  • We seek the development of the whole individual.


CITY coaches will strive to develop every player on and off the field. Our coaches provide the highest quality training available with the latest practices that are put in place.  Each player receives written player evaluation at the end of the fall season to be used as a benchmark to enhance players development into the spring season. 

We will strive to instill pride in the club and will encourage the success of each individual, team and club participant, parent, coach, fan and administrator. We are CITY!
