A NEW SEASON, A NEW CREST, SAME GREAT COMMUNITY

6.19.2020 


Dear West Chester United (WCUSC) Players, Parents, and Coaches,

 

The past several months have presented us all with unprecedented challenges, but also with opportunity. During this time, we have been active in reflection, evaluation and planning for the future. We are excited to announce our club’s ‘Return to Play’ plan that will introduce a phased approach to safely returning to on-field activity and fun soccer action. Earlier today the state of Pennsylvania announced that Chester County will be moving into a ‘Green Phase’ on 6/26/2020. We are confident that we will be operating a restriction-free Fall Recreation League following the Labor Day Weekend.

 

WCUSC has been at the center of the community since our founding in 1976, providing a quality instructional recreation league that has grown to 3,000+ registrations each year. In 2009 our management team (including the board members & senior staff) launched Penn Fusion Soccer Academy (PFSA) which houses 70+ travel and academy teams that compete at a local, state, regional, and national level. To date PFSA has placed over 460 players to NCAA collegiate soccer rosters, with 15 alumni currently playing professionally around the world.

 

It is time to align all programs, players, teams and camps under a united Penn Fusion Soccer Academy brand. By merging together the resources and scope of Penn Fusion with our recreational programs and leagues, we are looking forward to providing our West Chester soccer community with some great added benefits. This transition will not impact our recreation league in terms of location, price, or community connection; but will offer our players and families:  
 

  • Clear player development/progression pathway,
  • Improved collaboration and connection between recreation and academy coaches,
  • Advanced league registration and scheduling technology platform,
  • Connection to one of the nations premier youth soccer clubs,
  • Advanced camp and programming opportunities,
  • One website for all club information!
