Changes Coming to Youth Soccer in 2016

Many of you have heard about the proposed changes to youth soccer. Starting next year, all members of U.S. Soccer will begin to transition on two key factors to encourage further youth development. The first change will be the nationwide adoption of Small-Sided Games and the second will be a shift from school-year to calendar year for the age grouping of teams. 

CUSA Crew SC will keep you posted, as leagues confirm the effective date of the changes, but in the mean time, here is the official statement regarding the changes, as well as a downloadable FAQ document:

CUSA FOUNDATION LEADS TO COLLEGIATE AND NATIONAL TEAM SUCCESS

Claire Falknor started her soccer career in CUSA’s Recreational Program at age 5. At 7 she joined a team of local Centerville kids coming out of the Recreational Program to play on a U-8 Competitive team which joined the CUSA competitive program at U-10. Claire played through U-14 at CUSA in the Premier Leagues of CUSL and MRL. She went on to play her high school club years in Cincinnati as well as played for Centerville High School. Throughout her teen years she played in ODP eventually playing for our Region 2 ODP team and travelling the states and the world playing in countries such as Portugal.

Claire was recruited and joined the Florida Gators for her collegiate years. She followed a history of National Team players who lead the Gators to an NCAA Division I National Championship in 1998 and regular NCAA Tournament Appearances since then.

Claire is having a very successful career for the Gators most recently as a junior being named All SEC Second Team Defender and the MVP Defensive Player. Claire was recently asked to join the U23 National Team opening the door for an opportunity to reach her goal and dream of playing for the United States National Team.

Claire was also named the Iron Gator her sophomore and Junior years. This is an award recognizing hard work in strength and conditioning in and off season.

Heading into her senior year for the Gators, Claire hopes to lead the Gators to a National Championship. Her junior year, the Gators lost to Stanford in penalty kicks in the final 8, so 2015 may be the Gators’ year!

If you’re interested in seeing Claire and the Gators play, you can watch her on the SEC Network which covers many of their matches as well as the various ESPN channels that pick up other matches. If you’d like to see her play in person, the Gators are playing Ohio State at noon on SUNDAY (August 23) and also play in Nashville and Knoxville this season.

CUSA is proud of what Claire has accomplished and proud of providing her soccer foundation helping drive her passion and allowing her to reach these top levels of play. CUSA wishes Claire a successful senior year as a Gator and hope she can bring home a National Championship!
