Burlington Youth Soccer Club will become Burlington United Soccer Club as of the 2016 fall season. In partnership with Croatian Eagles Soccer Club and Burlington High School, BUSC will offer high-level local competitive soccer to players of all abilities while maintaining a family-based atmosphere and positive relationships within the community.
This is a fitting partnership, as both clubs have a similar vision, which is to promote the sport of soccer while also promoting a family atmosphere. The partnership between Burlington United Soccer Club and Croatian Eagles SC will result in an aggregate player pool of almost 750 active young soccer players. This is a great opportunity for both clubs to make a positive impact in southeastern Wisconsin.
From Amanda Seifert, BYSC President: “Burlington United would like to thank all of the people who have made BYSC a success for so many years. We look forward to offering high-level soccer to players of all skill levels in the Burlington area.”
Alexander “Sandy” Cowan founded the Burlington Youth Soccer Club in 1991. Since that time, thousands of boys and girls have learned to play and love the game on fields in and around Burlington. It has been a tremendous amount of work and commitment, and Sandy and the other volunteers deserve our respect and gratitude.
Burlington United will continue to teach a love for the game of soccer, starting with tryouts in June 2016, and the regular season in August 2016. The existing coaching staff will be led by Scott Suprise, the current Croatian coaching director, and supplemented with trainers and coaches from Burlington High School and Croatian Eagles, most of whom have played at the college and professional level in the US and abroad. Tony Guinn, head men’s soccer coach at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, will also serve in an advisory coaching role for the club.
BUSC was born from a desire to give players of all ages and abilities the opportunity to compete and succeed at the very highest levels. We partner with local schools, clubs, and organizations to maintain a close relationship with the Burlington community. All interested parents and players should contact us via the club website
