People often ask us where our policies, guidelines and approaches come from. The governing body of soccer in the state is the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association (CJSA) of which we are a member in good standing. CJSA ultimately reports into United States Youth Soccer (USYS) which falls under the U.S. Soccer federation.
As the governing body of soccer in all its forms in the United States, U.S. Soccer has played an integral part in charting the course for the sport in the USA for more than 100 years. In that time, the Federation’s mission statement has been clear and simple: to make soccer, in all its forms, a preeminent sport in the United States and to continue the development of soccer at all recreational and competitive levels.
