South Central Soccer Academy
Center Grove Soccer Club is located just south of Indianapolis, Indiana (U. S. A.). Founded in 1980, CGSC is the areas largest privately owned and managed youth soccer club. CGSC provides recreational soccer for children ages 4 to 15. In addition, the club provides a range of competitive travel soccer teams for boys and girls ages 8 to 18. In the spring, CGSC also hosts the high school age teams featuring some of the finest high school players from area schools. Every year, in June and October, the club hosts two nationally recognized youth soccer tournaments, drawing over 10,000 soccer players and families from around the country.
In 2008, Center Grove Soccer Club merged the two travel soccer programs (Center Grove Travel and South Central Select) to form a unified, seamless, premier travel academy focused on developing players from around the region to reach their highest potential. The new program is called South Central Soccer Academy.
South Central Soccer Academy has a new Indoor facility for year round training opportunities. All travel teams utilize the facility during the winter as well as having programs for recreational and specific development training.
The club is situated on 42 acres at the corner of Morgantown (C. R. 500 W) and Whiteland roads in Johnson County -- two miles west of the intersection of State Road 135 and Whiteland Road (C. R. 500 N). CGSC has a concession building, modern restrooms, clubhouse and two shelter areas. Our club is managed and operated by a volunteer board of directors and countless moms and dads who volunteer their time and effort.

SCSA's mission is to provide a safe, fun, and competitive environment where kids can grow their love for the game of soccer with an emphasis on community, inclusion, and player development.
SCSA's vision is to prepare the children of our community for the future by providing them with the opportunities to develop important life skills through the beautiful game. Whether it is teamwork, communication, confidence, or self-worth, we believe that these skills will guide our players toward future success in soccer and in life.
SCSA intends to achieve this vision by encouraging the members of the community to take an active part in the growth of soccer in the southern Indianapolis area. By establishing volunteer opportunities, strategic partnerships with local businesses, and an adherence to Indiana Soccer on statewide initiatives, our club seeks to provide a sense of community and responsibility to our players. Additionally, we encourage our players to participate in both club and community initiatives; promoting the self-confidence necessary to achieve their current and future goals.
