Club Expectations

The philosophy of the United Soccer Club is solely focused on developing young players to the best of their abilities.

  • Players must bring a ball, shin guards, water, and a serious attitude to learn and train hard to each and every practice.
  • Practices are MANDATORY. Please do not expect to play — unless you each attend each scheduled practice with your team or a substituted practice.
  • Players must realize that this is not recreational soccer. Our training is among the highest level of elite and developmental training anywhere in the country.
  • Players must always reflect respect for all authority figures, including coaches, trainers, referees, administrators, and, above all, parents.
  • All coaching and player allocation decisions (team assignments) are made solely by the professional coaching staff of the club.
  • Parents must stay away from the players’ bench area under all conditions.
  • Parents are implored NOT to coach during the match from anywhere at the field. Parents are spectators – they’re there to enjoy the matches.
  • Parents must conduct themselves properly at all times when players from the club are involved. The club and the coaches will not tolerate embarrassments and indiscretions at games and tournaments.
