Looking to offer more to the children and families of Queens, Soccer Friends USA, a recreational soccer academy in Central Queens, has created Queensborough United Soccer Club (QUSC). With three teams thus far [U8, U9, and U11] the main goal of QUSC is to be a successful community based program that helps make travel-league style youth soccer more affordable and easily accessible. Teams are formed solely on the merits of a try-out, and the only requirement for eligibility is that the child is a resident of Queens, and was born in the correct year of the team he or she hopes to make.
QUSC is based out of Forest Hills, and practices year-round two-days a week indoors and outdoors as its players perform in sanctioned leagues in Brooklyn and Long Island as well as in prestigious regional tournaments. QUSC officially became a non-profit organization in the summer of 2016 and has already completed its first season of play in the Long Island Junior Soccer League this past Fall. The new Spring season began on March 25th, as QUSC, the lone Queens representative looks to represent its borough with pride and passion.
QUSC believes in five principles that set them apart from similar organizations and that they believe will help make them the premier destination for the children of Queens to play competitive youth soccer. These beliefs are: that by growing the game of soccer in the United States, setting standards of behavior that contribute to a child’s personal development, progressing the latent soccer abilities of all players, accepting a responsibility to foster a love for the game, and by always remembering the importance of allowing players to have fun that we will grow as a iconic landmark for children to play and learn here in Queens.
