We are a club in the truest sense of the word. We get together for a common purpose - to teach kids the love of the game, how to get better at it, and how to win when winning is important. No one owns our club.
We are purposefully NOT FOR PROFIT because our aim is to provide this opportunity to young athletes from ALL economic circumstances, and a pathway to the highest levels of youth soccer and beyond at the lowest possible cost for all of our players. It takes passionate people to do this. People with a purpose that extends beyond themselves. These are the kind of people we look for to work at this club at every level, these are the kind of people we want to join this club, and most importantly, these are exactly the kind of people we want our players to become.
We coach our kids in highly collaborative, player-centered ways to the highest levels. We use the lessons we teach them about soccer as a means to also teach them about life itself, how to be a resilient person with good character, and how that can translate to winning on the field as well. That is how we are Building a Different Type of Player. We take pride in our Family. Just like a real family, we aren't always perfect, we don't always make the right decisions, but we love our kids and we always want the best for them, in soccer and in life.
All of this and more is what we call Making a Difference, and we are striving to make that difference every day in everything we do.

Establish coaches in age-appropriate player progression cycles to maximize the strengths and talents of each coach at a particular stage of player development.
Join us for our Soccer Skills Camps and develop all of the key skills required to be a successful soccer player. Our camps are designed for beginner to intermediate level players who are looking for a program that will help them develop all of their core soccer skills.
Players work with our highly experienced training staff as they are guided through our LC United curriculum. Ball Mastery will be the theme throughout as players will be instructed on successfully controlling the ball and possession under pressure while demonstrating field awareness.
Each day is packed with fun games and activities which are specially designed to help players get maximum touches on the ball and seriously develop their game!
We offer players a developmental experience above the challenge of playing recreational soccer. The focus of LC United is development and experience. Players wishing a more Competitive level will have an outlet available to them for performance based soccer. This gives them an opportunity to thrive in their development through skills training and playing competitively. This give the older players a pathway to excelling in the sport through a performance model. This model is generally for those players wishing to compete at higher levels that may wish to also compete at high school and collegiate levels and beyond.
This is developed through the years in Recreational / Academy soccer, and is a natural progression into Club or "Select".
The small-sided games movement requires us to maximize ball contacts by reducing the number of players competing for possession. Pick up or Street Soccer allows for maximum touches on ball.
Structured soccer reduces the creativity aspect of the game. Most practices today lack the 1v1 duel which is the foundation of the game. Players must be part of 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 learning and creative moments to succeed. Youth players are still uncomfortable in small-sided environments. We want to get players into an environment that stimulates decision making, deception, proper touches on the ball, and creativity.
Street Soccer will help us accomplish that.
