In recognition of the 30th anniversary of youth soccer in Collingwood, and the contributions made by the Collingwood Optimist Club in initially establishing and operating the soccer program (previously known as the Collingwood Optimist Youth Soccer League - COYSL), the CUSC is proud to honour the Optimists in our 2019 Season in the following ways:

  1. We have adopted a new logo for this year to commemorate the 30th anniversary and pay tribute to the Optimist Club.  This will be proudly displayed on all youth soccer jerseys.
  2. For the youth travel teams, we are going “old school” with our jerseys, reverting to the green that was originally worn under the COYSL program.
  3. As part of our “bond hour” program for the youth travel teams, we will be offering volunteer hour opportunities with the Optimist Club – our way to give back to them in recognition of what they have given to us.

We are excited for the upcoming season and to celebrate 30 years of youth soccer with all of our athletes, families, sponsors and fans, and the Collingwood Optimist Club. 

See you on the pitch!


In order to help recruit volunteers, CUSC uses a bond program.  Each travel team player (Youth and Adult)  is required to provide a post-dated "bond" cheque ($150.00) to CUSC, which we destroy after you fulfill 3 volunteer hours for the club.  Cheques must be dated September 1, 2019.  If you choose not to volunteer, we will deposit the cheque in September.
Each travel team player (or somebody on their behalf, such as a parent) must fulfill 3 hours.  Parents with multiple children on travel teams must fulfill 3 hours per player.
Team coaches, managers and CUSC Board members are not required to submit a bond cheque, since they already volunteer much more than 3 hours!

Players cards will not be released until the bonds cheque has been received.  


2019 Volunteer opportunities will be available in late Spring
