The Charleston Battery is an American professional soccer club based in Charleston, South Carolina and member of the United Soccer League. The Charleston Battery Foundation has partnered with Daniel Island Town Association to develop a multi-field soccer complex on the south end of Daniel Island.
The partnership includes a 25-year lease for the space located two miles from MUSC Health Stadium.
The complex will be used by the Charleston Battery and its newly formed youth club, Charleston Battery Soccer Club. The professional club will use the facility as an additional training space and a host site for visiting Major League Soccer and United Soccer League teams, while the youth club will use it year-round for a variety of soccer activities.
The partnership with Daniel Island is part of Charleston Battery Soccer Club’s plan to secure quality facilities in all areas of the Lowcountry in order to provide accessible soccer programing for youth players in the entire Charleston Metropolitan Area.
In addition to providing programming ranging in level from recreational to elite, Charleston Battery Soccer Club has been working with multiple municipalities to run camps and clinics for underprivileged youth. Part of the club’s philosophy includes providing quality coaching and equal opportunities to play the game for all children regardless of socioeconomic status.
Charleston Battery Soccer Club was formed in the fall of 2017 by the Charleston Battery (USL) in partnership with the Charleston Fleet (WPSL). The club is the only youth soccer club in the Charleston area that offers a direct path to professional teams for both boys and girls. Charleston Battery Soccer Club’s goal is to continue the growth of the game by offering soccer programs attainable for all members of our community. In addition, CHS Battery SC aims to develop players from young ages and prepare them to play at the collegiate and professional levels.
