About Crusaders United SC
Crusaders United began as Crusaders SC and was founded in 1994 by club president Tim Dunn. The club started with one girls team coached by Tim and has grown expadentially over the years. When Bill Johnson came on board so did our boys program. He helped grow crusaders into the dual gender club that it is today. The Crusaders SC took a major step several years ago when it merged with Cape Cod United and then got it's name Crusaders United SC. Since the merger, the club has become a staple in premier soccer in the South Shore and Cape Cod. In 2010 Crusaders United had more teams competing for state championships than any other club in Massachusetts.
The Crusaders United Soccer Club is committed to educating and developing athletes to their maximum potential by creating and developing a safe and positive learning environment.
