We are thrilled to announce the merger of Columbia Soccer Club (CSC) into Crew Soccer, paving the way for an enriching soccer program for the youth in Columbia, IL and surrounding communities. This collaboration brings together the best of both organizations, combining shared expertise, resources, and passion for the sport. With a unified vision and commitment to the development of young athletes, this merger sets the stage for a truly exceptional soccer experience.


Joining forces offers a wide range of benefits to the youth in our community. Players will still get the fun and recreational soccer they have always enjoyed through with some additional benefits and resources for our coaches, parents and players.  The combined expertise of Crew Soccer and Columbia Soccer Club will create a comprehensive and well-rounded program that focuses on skill development, teamwork, and character building. Our goal is to foster a love for the game while instilling important values such as sportsmanship, dedication, and perseverance. Through a fun and rewarding soccer experience, we aim to inspire young athletes and help them reach their full potential both on and off the field.  If you haven’t already, please follow Crew Soccer on Facebook to get the latest updates on this news and be watching for Fall Junior Crew registration information beginning in early June!


Many people are asking: What will change about CSC?
The simple answer is “not much.”  The player experience will be the same recreational soccer program with just one practice and one game per week.  The logo will change to reflect both programs and our Junior Crew coaches will be provided with training materials to help them prepare for practices and games.  That’s about it!


Many people are asking: Does this mean we will have to travel to St. Louis for our games?
No.  All games will be played in Columbia at the Junior Crew fields next to Red Roof gas station as you enter into Columbia from Interstate 255.
