Cochise College Soccer


Cochise College soccer has enjoyed much success since the program’s inception in 1998. The Apaches have had players named NJCAA All-Americans, to NJCAA First Team All-Region teams, and to numerous ACCAC first and second teams. Former Cochise players have also played in the Women’s Professional Soccer League. Cochise College is an environment that fosters athletic, academic and personal growth through the game of soccer. The soccer field on the Douglas Campus is used by the Apaches for summer pre-season training and the regular season in the fall, but students and athletes also use the field for pick-up games throughout the year thanks to moderate temperatures and sunny Southern Arizona weather.
