Open Tryouts in September. See try-out schedule and details here. 


Please note that academy trialists who are not selected for an academy or cobra team for the fall/winter season will automatically be placed into the U9-U14 CObra Technical Training and the CUSC winter Futsal league.  Both of these programs are covered by the competitive base registration fee, so no further payments are required.  Players may request a refund, less a $50 tryout fee at that point, if they do not wish to play in the futsal league and train in the technical program. 


Available through Disalvo Sports on Bank St. 

These will be identical to the academy kit used in the summer seasons.

Training shirts are available through CUSC.
