Player Pathway

United Sports FC is proud to provide a platform that suits various playing abilities. Whether you're new to the game or aiming for college or even pro soccer, our pathway is  for fostering burgeoning talent, instilling discipline, and forging unforgetable memories.

USFC is a US Club Soccer member with access to top level competition such as the Washington Premier League Super League, the NPL Finals, and US Club Soccer National Cup. 

The NPL currently consists of 17 leagues across the country with numerous clubs and teams participating. 

Back to TEAM


At USFC, we strive to produce a team-centric approach to player growth and development, understanding that individual growth flourishes in a collaborative environment. Through a team focused approach, players learn not just from coaches but also from teammates. Skill enhancement becomes a collective effort, with each player contributing their strengths and learning from others. Team goals are set collaboratively, fostering a sense of shared purpose. Players will naturally look to their peers for inspiration and guidance. A positive team environment encourages healthy competition, pushing each player to elevate their performance. Players understand that individual success contributes to the overall success of the team. This then leads to personal accountability and individual goal setting. Long term shared experiences, team habits, and bonding activities strengthen the team's unity, creating a sense of belonging that goes beyond the pitch.

Hard, Smart, Together

United Sports FC's approach to youth soccer distinguishes itself from other clubs in that our club focus's on the team. We believe that it is important that each player's youth soccer experience should go beyond the pitch. We are dedicated to creating an environment where players can achieve success together, building strong team bonds by recognizing each person's strengths and areas to improve.

Each team has to earn their privileges together. For example, if there are 2 teams in an age group the top team is not automatically the Gold team. The team will be placed according to their ability. Once they achieve league success, they then earn the privilege of moving up a color (level) and gaining more competition such as farther tournaments and higher league play.

Through the implementation of this player pathway, our teams emulate real-life scenarios preparing our players for life off of the pitch. This experience not only fosters effective teamwork but also instills the values of setting and achieving goals, all while celebrating collective accomplishments as a team that is UNITED
