CUSA Gives Back

CUSA is recognized as a civic and community organization dedicated to youth development and community service. When we see a need, we strive to fill that need to the best of our abilities, "see a need, fill a need". We are always looking for opportunities to serve in the local community, and more recently we have branched out internationally to work with Back2Back (B2B) in Monterrey, Mexico. Back2Back is dedicated to providing holistic orphan care to children in a variety of international locations and they also coordinate with organizations like CUSA to facilitate support and other philanthropic activities.

CUSA's most recent trip (this past June) involved bringing supplies to and connecting with children and care providers through specific work projects, as well as soccer clinics hosted by CUSA's former DOC Jed Zayner. As of this month, Jed is now a full time resident in Monterrey, Mexico supporting Back2Back’s mission for competent trauma care for children.

Here are some pictures from our most recent trip.

    

     

Our goal is to follow Jed’s leadership and continue to support the work in Monterrey while at the same time providing opportunities for the growth and development of the CUSA player.

We are now in the planning stages for our next support event and service visit to Monterrey and would like to invite you to join us and to participate to the level of interest and desire that suits you and your family. Please feel free to join us by coming together to make a difference.  Interested in learning more? Please click on the following email link for more information: ServiceOutreach@cusasoccer.org

CUSA looks forward to hearing from you and spending time together with a purpose.

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.
