STEEL UNITED AT A GLANCE

Steel United is a non-profit, national soccer initiative designed to provide a foundation for successful soccer clubs both on and off the field. Steel United is owned and operated by the Steel Sports Foundation, with over 20 years of proven player development experience. We provide clubs with the valuable resources and coaching staff they need to manage a successful soccer club. The emphasis at Steel United is on long-term player development, creating successful players and providing pathways for continued success via club and representative teams, college programs and even professional opportunities. Steel United clubs represent a complete soccer program with travel, lifestyle and playing opportunities throughout the year, but most importantly, a coaching program that will allow children and young adults to thrive as soccer players.

The combination of quality staff relaying a national message results in the creation of dynamic and state-of-the-art curriculum. We start with our youngest players and introduce them to movement, balance and, of course, the fundamentals of the game. Our coaches help us to create technical players who will one day thrive in the most competitive playing environments. Consistent ideas, terminology and practice structure give players a firm ground to build confidence as a player.

When players leave the pitch, our job is not finished. Molding strong character traits in each one of our young athletes is equally important to what we accomplish between the lines. The Steel Sports core values of Teamwork, Respect, Integrity, and Commitment are the foundation of Steel United.

"We take pride in producing imaginative, skillful and entertaining soccer. We take time to develop and nurture our younger players to ensure they reach their full potential, and a progressive technical and tactical curriculum ensures players are challenged in a fast-paced competitive program."
