Our mission: “Furthering and promoting youth soccer”
From first-timers to experienced players, the Altoona Soccer Club and Global Premier Soccer Iowa provides kids the chance to learn, play and enjoy the game of soccer. We offer various programs to cater to all age groups and skill levels with a focus on helping every player foster a love for the game of soccer and provide pathways for all players to develop, train and compete.
Our players range in ages from 4 & 5 years old to high school-aged players and include players who are serious about improving their skills for next level play, as well as players who play for the pure enjoyment of soccer. Regardless of age and skill, ASC and GPS focus on providing an enjoyable and competitive environment to help spread the growth of soccer in Iowa.
