Welcome to GCU Men’s Club Soccer

The Grand Canyon University Men’s Club Soccer team was established in the fall of 2015, but already has transformed into one of GCU’s most reputable athletic clubs. We have established an extremely competitive team that plays matches in both the fall and the spring, and will have the chance to compete for both regional and national titles. We have also begun our own set of 8v8 tournaments to help players improve their skills all year long.

GCU Men’s Club Soccer is a member of the Southwest Conference and competes in the West Coast Soccer Association. The men’s club soccer travel team plays a competitive fall season schedule throughout the southwestern states, and in the spring, competes in an 8v8 league on campus.

GCU Men’s Club Soccer has a professional coach, equipment and uniforms, and plays on some of the best fields in all of the Southwest. Join us for fun, competitive and skilled soccer!

Lance Thompson opened the GCU Men’s Club Soccer program in 2016 after an accomplished collegiate coaching career spanning 17 years at six colleges. Thompson spent the previous three seasons serving as head coach at NCAA Division II University of Hawaii-Hilo. He compiled a 135-85-23 overall record in 13 seasons as a head coach at four different schools, with four of his teams reaching the postseason.

Thompson began his coaching career at NAIA Alliant International University in San Diego. He spent five seasons as head coach (1999-2003). His coaching record during that time was 57-32-3, and his teams reached the NAIA playoffs twice and were ranked in the top 25 in 2001 (No. 25) and 2003 (No. 7).

Thompson then made a shift in his athletic career and began coaching at Holy Names University, based in Oakland, California, where he spent two seasons (2004-2005) and posted a 20-14-5 record. His 2004 squad earned an NAIA tournament berth. He also served as the university’s athletic director. He was the director of soccer at NCAA Division II Notre Dame de Namur, and led the 2008 Argonauts to a 14-3-3 record and the Pacific West Conference championship. He spent three seasons at Cal Poly Pomona, then coached at NCAA Division II Cal State San Bernardino for the 2012 season.

Thompson is from Bel Air, Maryland, and graduated from Frostburg State University in 1995. He and his wife, Jennifer, reside in Peoria, and have three beautiful children – son, Tyler, and daughters, Kailey and Kiana
