RECREATIONAL

LET'S HAVE FUN

Creating a fun, educational environment for everyone

 

This is just the beginning

- Christiano Ronaldo -

Introducing a low-cost program that will provide an environment for every player to participate on a team, regardless of their interest or ability.
The program will provide 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.

Parent / Recreational Program

SA United's Rising Stars program is a grea program for kids starting out in soccer. Coming from 2 years at the YMCA, my son has learned so much ball work in just one short session in this program. It provides solid, professional coaching, where the fundamentals are learned within a fun, relaxed environment.

Coming soon

Parent / Recreational 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 very engaging. The training maximizes the player's abilities, teaches them about the game of soccer, and most importantly is fun!

Coming soon

Parent / Recreational Program

We have been with the Rising Stars program for 2 years now, I am impressed with the level of coaching that has shown through in my son's development and enjoyment.
