Today, April 24th, Cooper City Cobras and Sunrise Prime FC announce a strategic partnership to align two of the South Florida's strongest youth soccer programs.
Cooper City Cobras and SPFC (Sunrise Prime FC) leadership have had several meetings in the passing weeks & months. Sharing club philosophies and a long-term vision for enhancing youth soccer to create new opportunities for players in Broward County, both clubs found common ground in their passion for individual player development and see the importance of investing in local soccer talent. From the outset, Cooper City Cobras and Sunrise Prime FC have been driven towards the same overriding collective goal of providing players with the best developmental opportunities possible.
The aim of this partnership is focused on developing players from u8-u12 & to provide a pathway to the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL). Cooper City & SPFC staff will collaborate across both club platforms. This collaboration will bring access to the Pre-ECNL league for top talent coming through the ranks of the Cooper City Cobras. Further, SPFC will seek to bring specialized programming on select nights, at no charge to Cooper City members.
"Cooper City Cobras is proud to announce our partnership with Sunrise Prime FC, an ECNL affiliate that participates at the highest levels of US Soccer. SPFC has quickly become one of the top Girls’ soccer programs in South Florida and we are looking forward to working with them towards our club mission of continuously improving player development, implementing the latest and most innovative training methods and providing the best overall experience for our players. We are excited this alliance will also provide additional opportunities for our top talent to compete at the elite level both regionally and nationally." - Cooper City Optimist, Director of Coaches, "Chico" Moss.
Cooper City Cobras provides competitive soccer programs for the youth of Cooper City and surrounding areas. The Cobras have a well-established history of fielding competitive teams in South Florida. Not only are the Cobras a consistent finalist & champion in many of the area’s top tournaments, but the club has also seen many players move on and be successful playing within national-level platforms.
The Cobras soccer program operates as part of the Cooper City Optimist, (CCO), which is a “not for profit” organization and a distinguished member of Optimist International. Founded in 1982, the club has grown considerably through the efforts of hard-working volunteer parents who coach, assist with fundraising, and tackle the administrative/operational duties within the club. This hard work has seen the clubs recreational programming grow to over 1500 members.
“We are excited to announce the partnership with Cooper City Cobras. The aim of this partnership is to focus on the development of young players. An important mission of our ECNL program is to provide a long-term pathway for top soccer talent, which is why partnering with a well-established player development program such as this one is so important.” - Sunrise Prime FC Executive Director, Alan Hough

Also, parking at the Cooper City Sports Complex has gotten out of hand. Vehicles are being parked in fire lanes, no parking areas, in front of access gates and people are making their own parking spaces in the paved parking lots. This is causing a safety issue for everyone. Emergency vehicles cannot access our fields in case a participant is injured. Starting the week of November 14, 2016 the Broward Sheriff's Office will be issuing warnings to vehicles parked in fire lanes, no parking areas, unmarked parking spaces, and vehicles blocking gates.
Starting the week of November 28, 2016 the Broward Sheriff's Office will be issuing parking citations that can cost you $100 or more. There is ample parking at the Cooper City Sports Complex. Please park in designated parking spaces in the paved parking lots or in the grass field by the basketball courts.
