KUSC Academy

The KUSC Acadamy is launching in the fall of 2014 with players being invited to join the program during the spring recreational season.
The KUSC Academy focuses on the player and their individual, technical skills development without the pressure of short-term, result-oriented games.  Designed for 8, 9 and 10 year old boys and girls, players looking for a higher level of skills and play work through the KUSC Acadamy to ease transition into Kaneland United Travel and Premier programs.
Training and development are based on core elements developed by US Soccer and runs across fall, winter and spring 10 - 12 week sessions. Friendly games with other Fox Valley soccer club academies are included with each session.
          Instructors evaluate and assess each player’s before extending an invitation to join the KUSC Academy program.
