Introducing a low-cost program that will provide an environment for every player to participate on a team, regardless of their interest or ability.
Our program provides a fun, creative and non-stressful place to develop not only soccer players, but responsible young men and women.
Using a curriculum developed and delivered by SA United's competitive program, players will be able to enhance their technical and tactical skills, while building fitness and socializing with friends.
Players will; have the chance to be part of a team and learn how to become an effective teammate, strive to do the best they can while always giving 100% effort, learn how to lead a healthy lifestyle, learn about all aspects of the game, including how to play under pressure and utilize space, learn about tactical decision making, and how to deal with the chaos and ever-changing moments that soccer presents, work from a proven and age appropriate curriculum.
We wanted to see if our two boys wanted to play soccer and thought registering them for this program would be a good start. We are so glad we did, they have fallen in love with the game and can't wait to get to practice every week. The coaching staff at SA United are engaging and so enthusiastic about teaching soccer.
What a way to be introduced to soccer! We are a large family with a tight budget , registering our three kids with SA United was a great way to get them involved in the sport without breaking our bank balance. Having been training now throughout the Summer we decided to move two of our kids up to the Academy, they love it!
