About Kaneland United SC

Kaneland United SC is a community focused soccer club, providing area youth with recreational and competitive soccer opportunities, recreational referee development and soccer coach training and development.

We Believe
Providing a foundation for how the Club is run, decisions and direction, we believe in four key concepts


  • That soccer is the people’s game and that we will provide an affordable, high quality soccer experience, training and player development across all programs   
  • That youth soccer is fun, everyone plays, we emphasize development over winning and adopt best practices of positive coaching
  • That participation in youth soccer develops our children physically, mentally and socially, preparing them for bright futures and contributors to the community
  • That the community we build around the game of soccer is a touchstone for lifelong friendships, mutual support & respect and a vehicle for connecting with each other

Programs
The Club provides programs for every stage of youth soccer development, including:

  • Little Knights - an introduction to soccer program for 3 & 4 year olds
  • TOPSoccer - a free program for special needs players
  • Referee Training - teaching area youth how to be game officials and help them achieve their USSF Referee Patch
  • Coach Development - providing training and support to help our coaches learn, apply teaching skills and achieve licensing

With a strong community focus and emphasis on development, the Club attracts players from Sugar Grove, Elburn, Kaneville, Maple Park, Cortland, Virgil, Lilly Lake, Campton, St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia, Aurora, North Aurora, Big Rock, Hinckley, Virgil and Montgomery.

Organization

The Club is a registered 501c3 Not For Profit corporation and was incorporated as the Kaneland Youth Soccer Organization (KYSO) in 2008. The Club's history extends back to 1990's as an AYSO affiliate.

The Kaneland United Soccer Club (KUSC) was formed in 2011 as a division of KYSO and to provide a higher level of soccer development and training for area youth.

In 2015, both the KYSO and Kaneland United Soccer Club brands were brought back together as Kaneland United SC and forming a single organization providing a full spectrum of soccer programs.

The Club is led by an all volunteer Board of Directors who provide time and talent to organize and operate the programs. The Board is joined by volunteer recreational and competitive coaches who work with the players and who are supported by committed and licensed trainers.
