Welcome to AC Sandhills

Welcome to AC Sandhills

AC Sandhills is an athletic organization at its roots. Our mission is to offer as many recreational or competitive avenues for youth and adults to play and have fun through sport. 
 
Since 1986, our 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization has developed athletes through soccer. In 2010, the club opened its doors to other sports to allow a wider reach and variety of outlets. AC Sandhills now offers girls travel volleyball, the Lakers Youth Triathlon Club, girls lacrosse, recreation soccer (including the Mini Kickers and Future Star), travel soccer (developmental academy, select and classic), multiple year-round camps and clinics, and adult soccer.

With a quality, knowledgeable operations and coaching staff, AC Sandhills provides a fun and challenging experience for players of all ages. It is our goal to further our reach through growth and expansion which includes finding further possibilities through other sports and field development. 

AC Sandhills is the largest sport and athletic organization in the greater Sandhills region of North Carolina.
