Johnston Urbandale Soccer Club, Inc. (JUSC) is a not-for-profit corporation providing youth soccer programs to players in Johnston, Urbandale and surrounding communities in Iowa.
JUSC began as two separate clubs, the Johnston Soccer Club and Urbandale Soccer Club. The Urbandale Soccer Club started operations in 1975, and the Johnston Soccer Club shortly after in the late 1970s. In 2007, the clubs established a partnership by the name of the Johnston Urbandale Soccer Club to deliver our select programs. In 2017, the clubs fully merged to become one organization.
In 2014, JUSC and the West Des Moines Soccer Club (WDMSC) created an informal partnership to organize select teams for our older high school age groups under the brand of Sporting Iowa. In 2019, in order to advance the game in Iowa and position ourselves for new opportunities for our players, we formed a legal entity, Mid-Iowa Soccer Academy, LLC (d/b/a Sporting Iowa), to formalize the partnership and expand it to include our entire select soccer program from 11U through 19U. JUSC and WDMSC are the owning member clubs, and responsible for appointing individuals to the partnership’s Board of Managers. Learn more about Sporting Iowa.
