CUSA Crew SC Accepted Into the National Premier Leagues (NPL)
Play Starts 2017-2018 Season

CUSA Crew SC (Centerville, Ohio) is proud to announce that the club has been accepted into the National Premier Leagues (NPL) for the 2017-2018 season. CUSA Crew SC will be playing in the Great Lakes Alliance division which includes Ohio, Western New York, and Western Pennsylvania.  NPL is a US Club Soccer league for U13-U19 teams that fosters growth and development of soccer clubs to create the best development environment for players of all ages.

“Entering the Great Lakes Alliance (NPL) league is a step in the right direction for our players. US Club Soccer and CUSA Crew SC have the same mission…long-term development of all players. As part of the National Premier League, our top teams from U13 to U19 will have the opportunity to play for a national championship through high-level league play. The NPL system is known nation-wide for their prestige and high competitive level. NPL will allow CUSA Crew SC players the opportunity to be seen by the US Soccer National Staff, provide access to the id2 National Player Identification Program, and invitations to showcase events,” said Director of Coaching, Wichert de Wit.

CUSA Crew SC Executive Director Steve Thomas said, “We are honored to have been selected to the NPL.  CUSA Crew SC will be a dedicated and strong contributing member of the NPL.  I know our boys and girls teams will grow and develop and represent not only Dayton but Ohio on a national platform. We look forward to the opportunities and challenges NPL will bring to CUSA Crew SC and look forward to our first games in the fall of 2017.”

The addition of CUSA Crew SC to the Great Lakes Alliance NPL is a collaboration that made sense, as both share common player development goals and vision. The NPL has been raising standards for youth soccer players across the nation since 2011, and the acceptance by US Club Soccer of CUSA Crew SC to the Great Lakes NPL is a recognition of the program’s growth and development in recent years.  The 2017-2018 season will mark a milestone for Dayton as CUSA Crew SC will be the first greater Miami Valley area soccer club to be accepted into the NPL.  This milestone not only ensures CUSA Crew SC as a premier soccer club but will highlight the talent in Dayton. 

Ed Bernstein, the Great Lakes Alliance League Executive Director, “We are very pleased to have an organization of the caliber and with a long storied history of CUSA Crew SC join our NPL league. As one of the oldest youth soccer clubs in the country with a very talented player development staff, they will be a great asset to the Great Lakes Alliance NPL league!” Bernstein added “The primary reason for creating the Great Lakes Alliance NPL is to produce a predictable and logical next-step environment focused on the players and their development. We are very excited about the new opportunities that the Great Lakes Alliance NPL creates for our clubs and their players.”

CUSA Crew SC will be holding informational meetings for prospective NPL players and parents in the East Commons at Centerville High School on Friday, April 14th, and Friday, April 21st, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.

 

NPL Player Combines for prospective players and additional information sessions will be held on Friday, April 28th and Friday, May 12th (rain date May 19th) from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the CUSA shelter at Oak Grove Park at 1790 E. Social Row Road, Dayton, OH, 45458.  Registration information for the combines can be found at NPL Spring 2017 Combine Registration
