The mission of United FC is to provide an inclusive environment that is physically and psychologically enjoyable, challenging, dynamic and safe for players of all ages. This is handled through our top level trainers and coaches as they work to develop well-rounded players and teams.
While we will miss his energy level and contagious enthusiasm, we are extremely thrilled to announce that one of our own, Scotty Craig, has accepted the position of Assistant Technical Director at New York State West Youth Soccer Association (“NYSW”).
Through his involvement as the Director of the Youth Academy, Coaching, and Technical Training, Scotty has contributed much to the success of our players and our Club. Recognition of this kind is well deserved.
Scotty will sincerely be missed! However, we do know that youth throughout the NYSW territory will now be exposed to his passion of soccer.
Well Done Scotty – Players, parents, staff and your peers wish you all the best!

She won the Golden Boot as the top scorer in the 1991 tournament. Lilly is a 23 year veteran of the United States National Team, a 2 time World Champion and a 2 time Olympic Gold Medalist.

Our “Skill & Speed” Program will offer a hybrid combination of soccer technique (ball skills/handling) and speed & agility training.
