UC United Competitive Program

Union County United Soccer Club        
Union County United is the select competitive soccer program of UCYSA. The purpose of the program is to facilitate player development, by coaching technical ability, tactical understanding, leadership and life skills. Individual player development – not winning games at all costs – is the priority of this program. The objective is to provide a fun and rewarding playing experience, by facilitating positive learning environments and building intentional team cultures, that facilitate whole player development.

The club has provided select competitive soccer in our community since 2009. UC United teams play age group full-sided soccer, and have won multiple competitive league titles and tournaments. The program has provided the youth soccer training for many players who have gone on to excel playing the beautiful game in high school and college. Former UC United players make up the vast majority of the LHS teams who have enjoyed recent success, including the girls team who have won 8 consecutive GOL league titles. Players from our program have been selected for US Soccer regional teams, been named league MVP’s, received high school All-State recognition, and have earned athletic scholarships to play soccer in college.

This program extends beyond teaching soccer skills. It promotes players and coaches to adopt a growth mindset. UCYSA believes in the power of human potential. That players and coaches are not limited by their past experience. That everyone is capable of learning new skills and become the best version of them selves. That a positive attitude and consistent effort are the keys to success. And most importantly, that the game belongs to the players, and that youth sports should be a fun and rewarding experience.
