Mentor Coaching Program – Application Now Available

SAC is now accepting applications for our Spring 2023 Mentor Coaching Program.

This program is open to players aged 16 or older and provides an opportunity to give back to our club and community through volunteer coaching in our Recreation Program. With the support of a club appointed Sponsor, Mentor Coaches will plan and hold weekly team practices and coach Saturday games for 8 weeks from April to mid-June. Mentor coaches choose the day, time and location of the weeknight practice, and we will work to accommodate weekend game schedules. Participants will earn service hours, gain leadership and communication skills, and high school seniors will qualify to apply for the Mentor Program College Scholarship.

Please follow this link for more information and to apply:

SAC is excited to partner with CP Soccer to provide a free soccer program for kids (aged 7-18) who have cerebral palsy, or suffered from a stroke or some form of traumatic brain injury.

New Traffic Pattern

Over the past year, SAC has consulted with an independent company to study the traffic flow at the Lucido Fields at Covenant Park. With their recommendations, in an effort to improve the conditions in our parking lot, we will be implementing a new traffic pattern. Effective Wednesday, September 7, the entire main parking lot will change to a two-way traffic flow, with exiting traffic now following the same route used to enter. No traffic will be allowed to pass directly in front of the main office building/crosswalk. Please follow the new signage that has been added throughout the parking lot. A diagram of the new traffic pattern can be found here.

Social Media

Have a cool achievement or event to highlight for your SAC team, Coach, or player(s)? Please send in pictures and videos to for a chance to be published on our social accounts. We will review content from all SAC programs, at any level!

In loving memory of David Lubitz

Over the past year, David and his family established the Coach Luby Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to support training the next generation of youth coaches by building and fostering the skills needed to influence the positive development of children, and to help disadvantaged youth of Columbia to be able to compete in sports at all levels. David has identified 4 key qualities – leadership, sportsmanship, mentorship and compassion that will help coaches and youth to succeed in the ultimate game — the game of life! –
