It all started back then in 2003 Coach Sean set foot in Vienna to fulfil his big dream: dedicate himself to the most beautiful job in the word - Coaching kids. And just like that SUSA (Sean's United Soccer Academy) was born. Ever since Sean and all his trainers keep exciting kids from all over the world sharing the very same passion for coaching & kicking a ball. But it's more than just that: to join the SUSA is more like joining a big, fun family with people from all around the globe, not only for our little ones, we'd also like you as parents to feel at home at SUSA!
Importantly our programs remain structured to ensure that EVERY CHILD (irrespective of their skill level) can improve their skills and truly live their soccer dream.
