About Us

Founded in 1977, Columbus Express Soccer Club is Indiana’s Premier Soccer Experience.

We take pride in providing a high-level soccer experience to meet the evolving demands of the game at a price point affordable to all players.  Our heritage is deeply rooted in Columbus though we have been fortunate enough to work with players from all across Indiana.

Our programs are designed to benefit all athletes that participate at Columbus Express Soccer Club.  Through a strategically planned curriculum, informed and educated coaching, and adaptive techniques, we strive to provide our athletes with the best possible environment for growth and improvement.  Our Player Development Curriculum is a proven holistic approach to improve the Technical, Tactical, Physical, and Psychological aspects that benefit the player in an array of areas connected and disconnected from soccer.

“Provide Every Opportunity to Improve” because we understand the lessons and attributes gained through athletics can start an upward trend in an athlete’s life.
