On behalf of the South Carolina High School Soccer Coaches Association (SCHSSCA), I would like to invite you to the 2020 SCHSSCA Winter Clinic to be held January 31-February 1 in Columbia, SC. The SCHSSCA has planned what we are hoping will be another successful event in the Palmetto State’s capital city. Once again, the SCHSSCA has teamed with Lloyd’s Soccer, a longtime friend of prep soccer in S.C., to sponsor this event.

The SCHSSCA Winter Clinic, now in its’ 26th year, is the annual kickoff to the Palmetto State’s prep soccer season. More than 100 high school coaches from across the state will be in attendance for the two-day event.

The featured guest clinicians will be:
