PROGRAM DETAILS:  In 2016, we launched the United Program to provide top-level youth soccer players a one-of-a-kind youth professional soccer immersion experience versus some of the World’s best youth academies and top travel teams.  We select U17 players to create teams to attend the Gothia Cup in Sweden.  We then choose U15 players to form teams to attend Vildbjerg Cup in Denmark.  Finally, U13 players are selected to create teams to attend the Rey Cup in Iceland. 

Along with a dedicated United Coaching Staff and the exceptional international friendly matches before the events, the complete experience is second to none.  Unique to the Gothia and Vidlberg Cups, teams arrive before the main event to participate in pre-event training and/or friendly matches so players and coaches can prepare accordingly.  All teams will train (up to three times) and play domestically before traveling overseas.  Note:  Gothia Cup allows up to two over-age players and a roster of 18 to participate on a team.  Vildbjerg and Rey Cup allow a roster of 18 to participate on a team.  United Head Coaches reserve the right to select fewer than 18 players.  

1)  Open Tryouts.
2)  Club Director, Technical Staff, and Coaching Staff recommendations.  
3)  Scouting and identification during matches, events, showcases, combines, etc.
4)  Identification and recommendation from opposing Directors, Technical Staff, and Coaching Staff throughout league play.

Past Parent Reviews

"I just want to say thank you so much for taking such good care of all the kiddos on the Denmark Trip, especially my Aiden. He had such a good time and speaks very highly of all of the staff that was there. He loved playing with the boys he got play with and was sad when it was over. It’s definitely an experience he’ll never forget. Also thank you for the daily Reels and photos, it made us a little more at ease being able to see our boy in action. You guys did a FANTASTIC job!!"
