CUSA continues our commitment to providing outstanding opportunities for soccer players of all ages and abilities from throughout the greater Dayton area.
Our Academy program is by far the best in the area with players travelling from far and wide for a chance to train and play with CUSA Academy.
For those young players seeking the advantages found in a competitive atmosphere, our Academy Program offers such chances, beginning with the U6 age group.
The Academy program is for players who need a more rigorous schedule and competitive playing environment than can be traditionally offered in recreational soccer.
Teams will play 5v5 (U7 & U8) EPL plus ‘festival games’ and 7v7 (U9 & U10) 4 tournaments & 1 league GCSL or MVYSA.
The Academy will primarily focus on technical development of a player within a frame work of games and activities that have problem solving and decision making (tactical) components to them, all whilst growing their passion for the game.
All Academy teams are coached by professional and licensed coaches with a deep understand of the game.
Younger children are full of energy so these professional coaches also have licenced, but non-paid, assistant coaches to help them.
Players - Available for boys & girls from U6 to U8.
Spring Season - Starts in March 8-10 week session.
Cost - See fee schedule here
Games - The players will play small-sided games with other Dayton and Cincinnati area select clubs.

If you are in the Dayton area, and beyond, CUSA is the best club to be at and will provide your player with the best training available in state.
Coach Shane Smith, pictured, is the Director of CUSA Academy and, if you have a young player in soccer, then you've probably heard of him. He's a bit of a local celebrity himself being a huge part of the attraction of Academy players to CUSA.
Please come out and train with us to get a feel of what we are about. We can promise you this though, once you train with us, and see how fantastic our coaches are, you won't want to go anywhere else.
