GCU women’s club soccer was established in the fall of 2015, but already has experienced enough growth to qualify as one of the fastest growing club soccer programs in the nation. We are a member of the Southwest Conference, and compete in the West Coast Soccer Association. Our travel team plays fall and spring seasons-with matches at GCU’s excellent facilities, and games or tournaments in California, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas. If you are a student who is looking to continue developing athletic abilities and a passion for the sport, our GCU soccer club is for you.
Due to the growth and success of our program, we are able to host our league at GCU. Our club is fully established, extremely competitive and at an intercollegiate level with all teams playing an 18-game schedule in the fall and spring seasons. Over the course of both seasons, our club soccer teams play approximately 40 matches, including tournament play. GCU’s women’s club soccer works with top coaches, equipment and uniforms, and plays on some of the Southwest’s best facilities. We are a year-round program and always welcome new, motivated athletes.
