Independent Premier

Introduction

The Independent Premier (IP) program is an extension of the MUSC Recreation program.  The program is designed to give highly successful recreation teams the opportunity to pursue a higher level of play above recreation but not at the level of the premier Fusion program.   The teams who choose to play Independent premier are those that want to keep their existing team and coach together as they pursue a more competitive environment through the Heartland Soccer Association.

Program Benefits

  • Guidance from the Club’s Technical Directors
  • Access to MUSC Coerver Coaching Information
  • Players may participate in Special Academy training sessions with Fusion Academy coaches and Technical Directors
  • Opportunities to train with Fusion age groups
  • Year-Round access to Club Office and Director of Coaching
  • Priority MUSC practice field reservations
  • Low cost of $105 per player per season

 

Program Guidelines

Teams that participate in the IP program will play under the MUSC umbrella. The expectations for participation include:

  • Teams must be moving from a Recreation Division team to participate.
  • Coaches are volunteers (not paid).
  • Coaches can hold any tryouts one week after the conclusion of Fusion Premier Team tryouts.
  • MUSC is a Nike Premier Club Member and as such it is expected all MUSC Independent Premier teams will wear Nike uniforms that include the MUSC logo.  Please contact admin@metrounitedsc.org on how to order Nike uniforms for your team at a significant discount.
  • Teams will register with MUSC.
  • Teams must play under Heartland’s Premier Age Group guidelines.  Teams aren’t formed by grade levels.  IP will follow the new birth year guide lines. If a team has multiple birth years playing, they must play up to the oldest grade level.
  • Teams must play under the premier roster size limitations.
