We're passionate about Community, Player Development, Growth and Success.

GulfSouth Soccer Club is a 501c3 not-for-profit youth soccer club located in Santa Rosa Beach, FL.  Our club was founded as a way to provide a competitive club serving Okaloosa, Walton and Bay Counties, including the communities of Destin, South Walton, Freeport, Niceville, Defuniak Springs, Panama City Beach, Lynn Haven and more.  As a foundation to the success of our club, we provide our players a program that combines the mastery of team based soccer tactics and strategy in unison with our RDE℠ individual player development plans.

Along with our parents, coaches and staff we strive to teach our players the importance of giving back to their community.  Each year the club selects a charitable organization we donate time and funds towards.  Whether that be by way of service time or donating monetarily through fundraising efforts, GULFSOUTH Soccer is proud to be a community-first organization.

To provide a youth soccer program that is both competitive and positive by focusing on fundamentals training, special skills training, conditioning, teamwork, perseverance, fair-play, character development, community involvement and fun.  We look to foster all aspects of being a soccer athlete - technical, tactical, physical, mental and emotional - in order to create better citizens through sport.  Provide professional coaching and offer age and ability appropriate opportunities that are encouraging for the novice player, challenging for the average player, and demanding for the most advanced player looking to continue their soccer career in college. Develop a love of soccer and help each player reach their own individual goals.
