Over the Winter, you are invited to come and check us out by training with the appropriate team in your age group during the Winter and early Spring period.

We think that once you experience training from our high level and extremely qualified coaches, you'll want to become part of the CUSA family.

With both recreational and competitive programs, CUSA is committed to player growth through developing technical ability, tactical awareness and problem solving skills, all whilst having fun.

As members of the National Premier League (NPL) and Great Lakes Conference (GLC) CUSA players have access to some of the highest levels of competition in the United States and CUSA provides all of its competitive teams with highly experienced, paid, professional and licensed coaches.

To this end, CUSA is so committed to providing your player with the best coaching available, we have Soccer book-authors, college coaches, high school coaches, Masters of Soccer Coaching holders and A-licensed coaches on staff. Quite simply you do not get this at other Dayton clubs, so if the development and improvement of your player is the most important thing, CUSA is really the only choice for you.

Tryout Frequently Asked Questions

What should my player bring to tryouts?

Please bring a soccer ball, a water bottle, shin guards, and soccer cleats.

How long do I have to decide if I want to accept a roster spot?

For Summer tryouts, we would expect acceptances the same night otherwise we will have to offer spots to other players.

For Winter tryouts, as teams are already formed, this is a more relaxed process with a week or two being the norm. 

Are teams already preselected?

Tryouts are open and each player is given the chance to make the most appropriate team.

Will my team have a professional or parent coach for the season?

Your team will have professional trainers and a professional head coach.

What will happen after tryouts?

for Summer Tryouts, you will likely receive an offer the first or second night which you will be expected to accept or decline that night. Based upon this decision you will receive paperwork and begin the registration process. 

For Winter Tryouts, the club may invite your child to train with a specific team during the following weeks to properly observe them, from there a decision will be made and you will be notified by the Age Group Director of Coaching.

Who can I contact if I have other questions?

For further information please contact the age-group Director of Coaching;
