Lakelands Toros Soccer Club


To develop, promote and teach the fundamentals of the game of soccer to players under the age of nineteen within the Upstate Region of South Carolina, as defined by the SCYSA Constitution and By-Laws. Also, the Lakelands Toros Soccer Club shall work to strengthen and unify existing Toros teams, promote the development of new Toros teams, work to educate the general public and teach good sportsmanship. The Lakelands Toros shall be organized as a non-profit instructional and educational organization.


To be recognized around the local area, Region and State, as the leader in the development of soccer players and coaches.


Lakelands Toros is an affiliate of the United States Soccer Federation and South Carolina Youth Soccer Association.  We field Select boys and girls teams in the U13-U18 age groups that compete in South Carolina. Our home fields are located in Uptown Greenwood.

Lakelands Toros also offers a Junior Academy development program for U8-U12 players (boys & girls) who will be introduced to training that focuses on the "natural" game of soccer.  This approach allows young players the freedom to master and acquire new techniques, learn small sided tactics and principles of all positions while creating the mentality to be the best you can be. 

Lakelands Toros introduced a Recreation Program in the Spring 2013 season for boys and girls aged four to twelve. In 2017, we merged our recreation program with the Greenwood YMCA. In our recreation program, participants gain basic soccer skills while learning to work and enjoy being on a team. Lakelands Toros also promotes exercise and a healthy lifestyle in young children. 
Our coaching staff is high quality and draws from the college, high school, and ODP (state team) ranks. Many of our coaches have earned multiple licenses which are awarded only after completing a rigorous course of instruction at the national schools.
