About PRIDE Soccer Club
Pride Soccer Club (PSC) was established in 2004 responding to the need of a more competitive and developmentally focused youth soccer club in the area and started out with only a few teams. Since that time PSC has grown to one of the most successful and respected clubs in all of Ohio. PSC has developed teams to be able to compete on the State and Regional levels and has produced over 70 collegiate level players in the last 5 years! PSC is comprised of around 600 players from ages 6 through 19 and has widespread membership with players coming from over 35 different school districts and 8 counties!
The PSC Coaching Staff has over 35 professionally licensed coaches with 80% holding a United States Soccer Federation (USSF) National ‘D’ License or higher, making it one of the highest licensed staff in all of Ohio. The coaching staff is guided and directed by the PSC training and coaching curriculum, continuing coaching education, as well as the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) and United Soccer Coaches (USC) guidelines.
PSC teams compete in multiple leagues and formats based on the developmental needs of the team which includes but is not limited to: Ohio Champions League (OCL), Central Ohio Premier League (COPL), Buckeye Premier Youth Soccer League (BPYSL), Ohio South State League (OSSL), National Premier League (NPL) and Great Lakes Conference (GLC).
PSC is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, which is supported by player fees, donations, and fundraising.
