About MCUSC

Our Roots

Founded in 2014, the Montgomery County United Soccer Club (MCUSC) is a not-for-profit organization registered with the Indiana Soccer Association and organized by the Boys and Girls Club of Montgomery County.

Our Mission

We aim to provide an opportunity for all players to participate in a competitive environment that develops a player's skills, knowledge, and appreciation for the game of soccer by incorporating the best training, structure, and development through experienced and positive coaching.

Through playing competitive soccer, we strive to help players mature as people, encouraging the development of important life skills such as good sportsmanship, teamwork, goal setting, and fair play.

Our Principles and Policies

All players who want to play for Montgomery County United will be placed on a team for the Spring. We field Recreational Plus team, for which tryouts are not necessary, and Indiana Soccer League teams, for which tryout attendance is required.

For more information on the principles and policies to which we adhere, visit the Rules and Guidelines page of this website. For more information on general tips and soccer etiquette visit the Parent's Corner page of this website.

Our Club Teams

Our West Central Suburban Soccer Federation (WCSSF) teams are often co-ed, while our Indiana Soccer League (ISL) teams are single-sex. However, the composition of the team is determined by the number of interested male and female players of each age group that register. 

For U13 and U14 teams, MCUSC will not field a team with fewer than 14 players on a roster. For U18 teams, MCUSC will require 16 on a roster to field a team. MCUSC cannot roster more than 22 players. As such, MCUSC may ask players to play up in age group (e.g. a U13 player plays on a U14 team) to creater a larger, more sustainable roster.

MCUSC may not have more than six players from the same high school (and who played for thier high school team and could play again in Fall 2017) on any club team. As such, depending upon the number of teams fielded, MCUSC may have to select only the first six players from each high school who express interest in participating on a MCUSC team.

Spring 2017 Practice and Game Schedule

Teams practice twice a week and play at least one, often two, games each weekend.  These formal practices for the Club begin the second or third week of March. Teams may also have winter training sessions as determined by team coaches. These practices begin early in January.

Practices for U10 and U12 teams are held at the Boys and Girls Club of Montgomery County. Practices for U14, U16, and U18 teams are held at Hoover Elementary athletic fields.
