Enterprise Select Soccer Club (ESSC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a member of the Enterprise Chamber of Commerce. We are sanctioned by Alabama Soccer Association and US Club Soccer. 

Enterprise Select SC was founded on the principle that Travel Soccer shouldn’t be a privileged sport and should be available and affordable to all children and young adults from all walks of life.

I started Enterprise Select SC in the Spring of 2015 with 1 team of 11 kids from the local YMCA here in Enterprise, Alabama. We added 2 teams in our second year and today we have 15 teams with 300 kids and growing. I once told a parent it wasn't my intention for it to grow like this and he said "Just because you didn't intend for it to happen, doesn't mean it wasn't meant to happen. Things happen for a reason"

The reason and our mission is to provide competitive travel soccer and great training to all kids, without them having to pay all the fees typically associated with Soccer Clubs and 3 years later our mission and philosophy has not changed.

We do not charge registration fees, admin fees and program fees, our board of directors are not paid, our licensed coaches are not paid, we all volunteer our time and effort for the kids of Enterprise AL. and the surrounding communities.

Soccer clubs in Alabama and across this country charge too much money to join their clubs and then ask for more money from their members throughout the year. Unfortunately in this country we lose too many potentially good/great soccer players because they cannot afford to join these soccer clubs to get the training they need to develop.

I wanted Enterprise Select SC to be different. I wanted it to be about developing and helping kids become better players. I did not want to be a pay to play organization. I wanted to give all kids that want to play soccer, a chance to train, develop and be part of a soccer club.

I am proud that we currently have over 30 kids in our club that are doing great things individually and for their teams. They wouldn't be playing travel soccer and getting the training they need to develop if it wasn't for Enterprise Select Soccer. 

We don't play in a lot of tournaments each season so I'm proud by this number. In our short time as a club our teams have played in 60 championship matches, winning 37 championships and 23 second place finishes. Our 12U, 13U and 19U teams won State Championships in their first season in the Alabama State League (2018/2019) Currently 10 of our teams are ranked in the state of Alabama and 5 of those teams are ranked top 10 in the state. We are proving and will continue to prove that our training method and philosophy are developing some great players and some great teams and we're doing it the right way.

It's been an unbelievable blessing to have some great people that share my vision help me build this one of a kind soccer club and help me make a difference in these kids lives. There isn't a soccer club in this country that is doing what we do and we are proud to be breaking the mold.

A special thanks Mayor Bill Cooper and the City of Enterprise, Superintendent Greg Faught and Richard Pipkin and Ray Davidson of the YMCA.  Thank you for your help with fields and continued support of Enterprise Select Soccer.
