Cape Cod Crusaders
Established in 1994, the Cape Cod Crusaders have played at both the amateur and professional ranks within the USL. On October 10th, 2003 the USL announced the Crusaders' induction into the USL Hall of Fame. The club was honored for their ten years as a franchise and for services and contributions to the sport of soccer.
The Crusaders are a part of Mass Premier Soccer ( MPS ) whose mission is to cultivate the experience of young players in Massachusetts. MPS also operates the Boston Renegades, 2001 & 2002 National Champions of the W-League. The club has an extensive youth program from the School of Excellence and Super Y- League all the way through to the senior teams.
In 2007 Mass Premier Soccer will be introducing some exciting changes to the 1st team set-up. The top of the pyramid will now involve a U19 team and a U20 team that both feed directly into the PDL Team. Both the U19 and U20 teams will train alongside the PDL team for at least part of the season.
