Columbia Basin Soccer Association has a long history of serving adults in our community! From the 90’s when coaches lead the teams and there was only a women’s and a men’s league. To early 2000’s when a coed league was deemed necessary to accommodate women’s interest in playing more competitively! Each decade offering an evolving future for adult league play in the Tri-City area. Currently serving over 300 members ages 15 and up, with more than 15 games per week, we are one of the biggest and fastest growing soccer leagues in the state!
Mission: To maintain a safe and enjoyable arena for adults to play soccer in the Tri-Cities area and to promote good sportsmanship.
Vision: To continue growing and providing a quality environment for adults and soccer in the Columbia Basin Region.
