The Boards of Directors and Directors of Coaching of Cutters Soccer Club, Columbus Express Soccer Club and South Central Soccer Academy, announce a partnership of travel programs for player development purposes. A partnership has been formed to improve the soccer experience for Club members and provide the best youth development initiatives available.
This collaboration between three clubs’ travel programs will provide expanded opportunities to our member players with their club teams as well as an opportunity of combined talent of the three clubs.
Clubs will maintain their own try-outs and team(s) for the regular fall/spring travel seasons. However players of select age groups will have the opportunity for additional training and/or be placed on an additional team(s), with players of similar ability level, that will compete separately in select games, league and/or tournament opportunities. To participate, a player must be a member of one of the three partnership clubs.
The combined cooperative team(s) would not compete against any of the three clubs existing team(s). Proposed schedule for the combined team(s) would begin after the fall travel season and end prior to the spring travel season and consist of approximately twelve training sessions, four friendlies and one tournament (always subject to change).
The partnership will tap each club’s coaching resources of licensed coaches as well as area college coaches to conduct training sessions.
Costs associated with the partnership will be kept as low as possible and will be covered by the participating players.
The partnership is a natural fit with the philosophies of each organization. Each Club has strong; community based programming with an outreach emphasis, progressive and differentiated player development, and highly competitive travel and premier teams. The partnership will immediately leverage its combined strengths across the partnership's resources and facilities, educational programming and award winning tournaments.
