The St. Johns Soccer Club (SJSC) is dedicated to the development of the sport of soccer from the youth player through young adult levels. We are devoted to the principles of maximum effort and fair play and to impart knowledge, respect, and a life-long love for the game. Our soccer club strives to teach, develop, and enhance the fundamentals of the sport at all levels so players can reach their full potential in the game.
We offer opportunities in two programs, Academy Soccer for players 3 to 8 years old with players then progressing into our Select Soccer groups for ages 9 through 19.
Our Academy teams practice and play games locally at our SJSC Complex in St. Johns. Select teams are registered and play competitive, community-based league games in the Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) which comprises clubs from around the Greater Lansing Area.
