NCUSA has a vision for New Compex

NCUSA has a vision for a soccer complex in Davidson County. Soccer is a popular sport in the Triad area. Currently, there are 20,000+ children participating in the youth soccer leagues, and 4,000 adults participating in the adult league. The numbers of players are growing dramatically. There are two main factors that are impacting the popularity of soccer.  The first factor is that there are approximately 39,000 children under the age of 18 living in Davidson County. The projection is that the percentage of children under the age of 18 will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. The most popular sport with this age group is soccer.  The second factor is the growing number of young adults between the ages of 24-45 that are participating in team sports. Adult outdoor soccer leagues have grown by 35% over the past two years. Currently, there are at least 30 adult league teams in the Triad.
   Because of the growth in popularity of youth soccer, the need for a consolidated soccer complex to meet current demand, and the proven economic benefits, the Board of Directors of NCUSA plans to build a high quality, centralized soccer complex. NCUSA has purchased a 49-acre site in Lexington, off Highway 8 and Highway 52. The NCUSA Board of Directors has approved moving forward with plans to build the complex in three phases. NCUSA is proceeding now with Phase 1 that includes the development of five soccer fields and construction of a parking area, walking trail, and security fencing, as well as putting the infrastructure in place for future restrooms. The estimated cost for Phase 1 is $1,350,000, the goal of the capital campaign. 
  NCUSA is operated with several purposes in mind. The first and foremost is to introduce youth to the "Beautiful Game." Fostering an appreciation and love for the skills and athleticism required to make it so, at a young age. Recreation Soccer is open to all youth who wish to enjoy the benefits of team work, camaraderie, and sportsmanship, regardless of their level of ability. Beginning at age 4, the league offers a non-competitive environment where children can play the game for the sheer joy of doing so. NCUSA currently has children from 3 to 18 years of age.
   NCUSA will have all games played for the first time at our complex  the 2018 Fall season. There are fields in place tp play already. NCUSA will continue to grow and reach out to our community to make this vision a reality. The Complex will be used for other sports and events as well.
