AC Sandhills

AC Sandhills, an organization with athletics at its roots, offers numerous recreational and competitive avenues that allow young people and adults to have fun through sport. 

Our 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization has developed athletes through soccer since 1986. In 2010, we opened our doors to other sports, allowing a wider reach and variety of outlets. These outlets include girls’ travel volleyball, the Lakers Youth Triathlon Club, girls’ lacrosse, recreation soccer (including the Mini Kickers and Future Stars), travel soccer (developmental academy, select and classic), multiple year-round camps and clinics, and adult soccer.

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