About CISCO SC Southeast
The roots of the Arizona National CISCO Soccer Club, now known as the CISCO Soccer Club, started in 1969. In 1980 a formal combination of CISCO and Arizona National led to the fabled history known throughout the state, region and nation. Since that time CISCO continues to be a leader in Competitive Youth Soccer. In the past 30 years CISCO Soccer has accumulated over 100 State Championships, many Regional Championships & a National Championship. In 1998, CISCO won Arizona’s first National Championship with the U-19 CISCO Flames.
CISCO has prided itself on being a large soccer family. The Club philosophy is to provide a quality soccer program with coaches that model responsible coaching practices that allow youth players to develop to their fullest potential.
Unlike some clubs, teams are granted discretion to make their operational decisions within the confines of the Clubs rules and philosophy. The Club sets the overall philosophy that the coaches and managers are expected to implement. The Director of Coaching is responsible to the Board for the implementation of the Club Philosophy.
CISCO is located in the Northwest and Southeast Phoenix areas. We are committed to equal opportunity for all players regardless of race, ethnicity or national origin. The Club provides scholarships to assist players who have financial difficulties.
