Competitive soccer is the next step in the advancement of the serious soccer player. Parents and players can expect to compete against equal or more talented players and teams than they would experience in the recreational league. There is travel involved, along with out-of-town tournaments and training opportunities. Also see "Parents' Place" on the left.
Nature Coast Lightning (the competitive division of the Nature Coast Soccer Club) has two to three scheduled practices every week, and welcomes newcomers or visitors that may be interested in joining the program or watching our teams play at home. Practices are held at the NCSC fields at Central Ridge District Park. For Coach information, please look under the team-specific information under "Competitive/Recreational Teams" on the left.
