Cooper City Cobras Soccer provides recreational and competitive soccer programs for the youth of Cooper City. This soccer program is completely run by volunteers, operates as part of the Cooper City Optimist, CCO, which is a “not for profit” organization and a distinguished member of Optimist International. We currently are operating three (Recreational. 5v5, and Travel) youth soccer programs.

The Recreational league registers participants, ages 5 to 18 (still in high school), starting mid-August through mid-September; games are played from mid-November through mid-February. The 2015-2016 recreational season there were approx. 1350 participants on 120 teams. The teams play 2 games per week, one during the weeknights at either 6:30PM or 8:00PM and one game on Saturdays running from 9:00AM through 4:30PM. Mid-way through the season as we break for the holidays All-Star teams are selected, by the players, and just after the break we have the "Kip's" All-Star day, with games from the under 7 division and up. The recreational season culminates after a 12 to 14 game season with double elimination playoffs. The season concludes with Soccer Fest weekend where we hold our annual “John Marnon” memorial coaches' games on Friday night. Championship Saturday final games from the under 7 division and up, a day long festival of fun and activities for all, and two Charity games for a younger division and an older division mixed with boys and girls.

The 5v5 season registers participants, ages 5 to 18 (still in high school), starting on Soccer Fest Saturday, then from the end of February through mid-March. The 5v5 season in 2014 registered approx. 890 participants, fielding 107 teams. The teams play 2 games per week, one during the weeknights at either 6:30PM or 7:30PM and one game on Saturdays running from 9:00AM through 5:00PM. This 5v5 league offers a unique opportunity of playing quick paced small-sided games, no goalkeeper, 8 players to a team, and we do not keep score or track standings. The game is played with two twenty-minute halves on a small field allowing the players to utilize their passing and communication skills.
