Leeds Soccer Club is now being managed by BUSA
BUSA is proud to be the managing partner for Leeds Soccer, and we are excited to offer our services and programs to the Leeds area and surrounding residents. Our goal is to grow the club and add many new training and developmental opportunities for the players. In addition, we want to provide a “total soccer” atmosphere to Leeds Soccer which is the recreational component, and the competitive component combined. This “total soccer” program is not available to many cities in this area.
