About SCSA
South Central Soccer Academy (SCSA) is located just south of Indianapolis, Indiana. The organization was founded in 1980, as the Center Grove Soccer Club (CGSC). It is the largest privately owned and managed youth soccer club in the area. SCSA 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.

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). SCSA 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.
