Cary Defenders Competitive Soccer Program

     Cary Defenders is the competitive arm of the Cary Soccer Association (CSA).  Established in 1976, the CSA is one of the largest and oldest soccer organizations in McHenry County.   

     The Cary Defenders is a player education program. All soccer-related decisions are made with the end goal of providing an environment for our soccer players to lift themselves beyond their own visions of capabilities and provide the best possible opportunities of playing at the high school level, or at the collegiate level for our high school aged programs. Our organization promotes the physical, mental, and social development of youth in the team sport of soccer and endeavors to develop outstanding players who will excel at the higher levels of soccer and continue to have a lifelong enjoyment of the world's greatest game.
