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!
