Thank you for visiting the Crusader Soccer Academy website.  We have had a very successful four years starting off at the YMCA and transitioning to a club setting.  Remember this is OUR so continue with input and ideas to make this a fun and exciting fifth year.


Pictures from the Phoenix Cup tournament are posted on the Facebook page and out on Instagram.  Feel free to post any pictures from tournaments to the Facebook page, or email them to to have them posted to the website.

As we begin the new tournament season 2015-2016, we want to encourage players to bring out their friends to the open field dates who may be interested in playing in a more competitive setting.  While we don't have tryouts, some rosters may already be full from players from previous seasons.

The Crusader Soccer Academy is in their 5th year of existence, made up of tournament teams that play under US Club Soccer in Region C.  We currently have boys and some girls teams that compete in the U-7, U-8, U-9, U-10,    U-11, U-12 and U-13 divisions.  Registration is year round depending on the availability of roster spots.  We currently have available roster spots in all age groups for experienced players.  Interested players should contact Casey Korkus at  Competitive players not registered with the Crusader Soccer Academy interested in working out with our trainers may do so by calling 386-589-5414. 


To progress in any sport, an athlete must train on their own.  Two practices, and three hours a week isn't enough to cover all the basic skills especially if the player is behind.  We have uploaded Coercer foot skills that are easy to do at home.  Please encourage your player to juggle on his/her own, and work on the skills in the video.  If you send us a video of the student working on the foot skill we will post them.

Coach Mike Menard

We want to thank Coach

Menard, who held training sessions on Sunday evenings for the Crusaders.  Coach Menard is currently the trainer for the boys’ soccer team at Spruce Creek High School.  In his tenure at Pine Ridge High School he won two District Titles and made a Sweet 16 and Elite 8 appearance in the FHSAA State Tournament.  One of the original founders of the Deltona Youth Soccer Club, Menard has been a mentor and coach to thousands of players around the country.  He holds a Brazilian Certificate as well as an Advanced National Diploma from the NSCAA and a “B” license from USSF.  We are very excited and fortunate to have his experience and expertise on the field with us.  Coach Menard was the club coach of Coach Korkus, and the high school coach of Coach Alexander, Coach Sweeney, Dr. McPhearson, Coach Erickson, and Coach Robinson.
