Kendall Soccer Coalition joins Naples Cup lineup of clubs!
Kendall Soccer Coalition youth soccer club, a not-for-profit organization, was created in 2005 as the result of the merger of two of Miami-Dade County’s premier competitive soccer programs: West Kendall Optimist and Southern Soccer Coalition. The club’s Boys, Girls and Academy programs provide an environment for elite soccer players to train together under a qualified coaching staff to elevate their play and showcase their talent in competition against top youth soccer teams across Florida and the nation. The club’s primary goal is to offer the best possible soccer and personal development, and to provide growth opportunities to those individuals who have the talent to potentially compete at the collegiate level. Our program also places significant emphasis on preparing players for the transition to the next level of play at the same time that we assist in facilitating their access to a more affordable post-secondary education and a more prosperous future as active members of the South Florida community. Prior to the union of both organizations, West Kendall and Southern Soccer teams achieved statewide and national prominence, with players from the clubs reaching the ranks of regional, national, college and professional teams. Teams from Kendall Soccer Coalition have participated in many of the country’s top youth soccer competitions and tournaments, including the USYS Region III and National Championships, Super-Y League National Championship, Disney Soccer Showcase, Dallas Cup, Raleigh Showcase, Jefferson Cup, Atlanta Cup, Germantown Invitational, Tampa Bay Sun Bowl and Score at the Shore. Kendall SC teams compete in FLUGSA, SFUYSA, Super Y-League, and the US Soccer National Development Academy. The club is a program partner of AYSO 450, West Kendall Optimist and the Miami FC USL 1st Division club.
