The Cutters Soccer Club in partnership with Columbus Express Soccer Club and South Central Soccer Academy (SCSA) have created the “Alliance” program for our clubs’ most accomplished players from 15U – 18U age groups. This program provides a pathway for each of our clubs’ most driven players who strive to achieve the highest competition levels in the Midwest. The program also helps alleviate the IHSAA 6-player rule that is challenging for clubs in smaller communities. Assistant coaches at the surrounding universities in the Central Indiana region often coach these teams. Alliance teams will train 1/3rd of the time at each of the three Alliance clubs during the season from Nov-June. Players interested in trying out Alliance teams may do so in the morning of the Indiana Soccer Association’s official tryout date (which varies year to year in mid June). Players that do not receive an invitation to an Alliance team are encouraged to attend their home club tryouts that occur later in the day or evening on the state’s tryout date.
