NCSAA Division I National Champions in 2021, the Life Center Varsity Boys Soccer program is nationally ranked, rich in history and tradition. Each season, our aim is to assimilate new faces with established players to form a committed and cohesive unit, both on and off the field. God, discipline and hard work are the foundation of our program, and it is the responsibility of each individual on the team to apply these principles for the benefit of the team. Fielding a rigorous schedule of 20-22 games each season, Warrior Soccer requires intense physical and mental toughness and preparation, which is provided by the coaching staff. Placing great emphasis on the importance of academic as well as athletic success, the team posted a 3.83 team overall GPA in the Spring of 2022, the highest recorded team GPA in the US. Our boys study hard, they play hard, they play fair and they leave their mark against every opponent they face. At Life Center Academy Varsity Boys Soccer it's "Our game, God's glory". Most of our players play at the Academy and Club level in the off season, for some of the top Academies and Clubs in the US, including, but not limited to the Liverpool FC Academy, Cedar Stars Academy, PDA, TSF, Real Jersey FC and many others. Some of our players even play for their clubs in the MLS Next League through the Prep School Waiver feature offered by MLS Next.
