Established in 2007, the Illinois Fusion Soccer Association works to benefit the youth of Central Illinois by providing quality instruction in the game of soccer.
We focus on the development of each player, striving to find appropriate challenges so each individual is surrounded with players who can provide the proper setting and nationally licensed coaches who can create the proper environment to improve. We research the latest information on youth development from across the globe to ensure we give our players the proper focus and tools to succeed. At the youngest ages, we look for incremental ways for players to measure success so they always feel they are improving. A player who feels he/she is improving is excited to train and has fun developing the skills necessary to become a competitive player as they grow older.
Illinois Fusion is also a proud host of the Illinois Fusion Spring Shootout, which has most recently brought in nearly 130 teams to the Bloomington/Normal area from all over the Midwest.
"Illinois Fusion has put together one of the most qualified coaching staffs not only in Illinois, but of any youth soccer club in the country. Because of their infrastructure, player development philosophy and commitment to support our programs, Illinois Fusion has earned the seal of approval from the Illinois Youth Soccer Association to become an Olympic Development Program designated club."
