WHO WE ARE
The beginning, our core values, our philosophy, the future
Welcome to San Antonio United, the premier grass roots standard in south texas soccer.
SA United was formed in 2005 by ambitious young soccer coaches from the British Isles with one thing in mind, spread the love of the sport that so greatly impacted their lives, and the soccer club experience, to as many people as possible in the San Antonio area, do it the right way, and have fun doing it. Since then, the club has grown the right way.
We currently have more than 1,200+ members and have reached thousands of people, who still proudly associate with their club long after they have left. Some went on to play College soccer, some to successful professional careers, some are now back with the club in a coaching capacity. One thing most definitely remains with a graduate of SA United, a love for a sport that they can carry throughout the rest of their lives, a sense of camaraderie, an understanding of teamwork, and a confidence that they are able to succeed in the world.

THE SA UNITED WAY
Our curriculum, standards and player growth philosophy
Our mission is to be the best grass roots club, offering programs for all players that want to learn and grow.
We are proud to be the most dedicated Soccer Club in the development of youth soccer players in the San Antonio area. We employ only the best technical trainers and role models, and set the highest expectations for player improvement from one season to the next. We will never put team wins and losses ahead of the importance of technical development. Great technical development from a young age will prepare the player to explore their full potential. We take pride in aiding the development of two most important qualities in developing youth, character and confidence. We consider it a massive privilege to be a part of your children's growth, and we want you as a family to enjoy the experience of being a part of the SA United family with us.
We provide all levels of competition necessary to achieve these goals. Our comprehensive play curriculum is designed to see a players development pathway through to completion, can begin at the age of 4 and continue until they become an adult. Every coach is licensed and vetted to ensure they possess the right character, knowledge and skillset to impart the SAU way into every player.
What do our members have to say about the club
Parent / Rising Stars Program
We have had our kids play soccer at multiple places (YMCA, i9), but SA United's Rising Stars program has been most successful at developing their soccer skills. The coaches are engaging, the training maximizes the player's abilities, teaches them about the game of soccer, and most importantly is fun! The program helped my kids and family love the game.
Parent / Junior Program
Our two daughters have been with SA United since 2004. We love the club, coaching staff and parents. SAU has provided great opportunities and experiences for our daughters. The coaches we have had have been phenomenal and genuinely care about the development of each player. The high level of training our coach brings to sessions is remarkable.
Parent / Senior Program
I wish to take this opportunity to highly commend the coaches at SA United for their
exemplary dedication, skill and superb
attributes demonstrated coaching my son. My son has been with the club for four years and during that time he has developed his skills to ever-increasing levels of play.
THE PLAYER PATHWAY
The developmental education an SA United player
From the very fundamentals to advanced team tactics and technique, the SA United Player Pathway guides and follows you through your soccer development.
Our Player Pathway aims to develop technical, intelligent, confident players whilst offering a holistic environment which encourages moral character and pursuit of personal goals. From four years old to senior levels, we aim to help players achieve their goals of high school, college and professional soccer, whilst the ultimate goal being life-long participation in the beautiful game for each and every SA United player.
