Pitch Pals Registration | Kickin’ It With Cocky Registration

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina men’s and women’s soccer announced two programs Monday that will give youth players the chance to be on the field this fall at Stone Stadium.

Through the “Pitch Pals” program, soccer teams in the 6th grade and under can be on the field during player introductions and the National Anthem at one of the 19 Gamecock men’s and women’s soccer contests. Squads must have a minimum of six youth players registered to participate as well as purchase a minimum of 20 tickets (including tickets for participants) for the select game. Tickets for “Pitch Pals” participants are $1 apiece, and interested participants can register Here.

Carolina’s “Kickin’ It With Cocky” program gives teams in the 6th grade and under the chance to hold an inter-squad scrimmage at halftime of a Gamecock match. Teams must have a minimum of 10 players to participate and purchase at least 30 tickets (including tickets for participants) for that match. Tickets for “Kickin’ It With Cocky” participants are also $1, and you can register your team Here.

For more information on both programs, contact Joe O’Clair ( in the South Carolina Athletics marketing department.

The Gamecock women return five starters from last year’s SEC Championship squad that tallied a program-record 21 wins and reached the NCAA Elite Eight for the second time in three years. The Carolina men’s team brings back seven starters and other key contributors from its 2016 squad that earned the program’s 22nd all-time NCAA Tournament berth last fall.
