Sporting Columbia administers Columbia's largest outdoor recreational soccer program in partnership with Columbia Parks and Recreation at Cosmopolitan Park. Our rec program is currently home to over 1200 youth soccer players ranging in age from 3 to 19. Our goal is to provide Columbia youth an opportunity to be active, healthy, and have fun learning the game of soccer!
