About Cincinnati United

 

Cincinnati United seeks to provide children, teenagers, and young adults of Lakota, Lebanon, Mason, Sycamore, and all of the other neighboring communities throughout the Greater Cincinnati and southern Dayton areas a full range of opportunities to enjoy and develop in soccer, at levels appropriate for their age, ability and interest. It is recognized that different children play the game for different reasons and that Cincinnati United must therefore provide a variety of programs which serve the needs and interests of all children in the community.

Recreational Outreach Program
The purpose of our ‘Recreational Outreach Program’ is to provide a robust coaching education program designed specifically for volunteer coaches. Our program will support existing Recreational Organizations throughout northern Cincinnati.

Competitive Program
The purpose of our ‘Competitive Program’ is to provide higher levels of training and competition in community based locations to those players interested in select soccer and to their volunteer coaches who have a passion to give back to their community. While always striving to be competitive, team sports primarily teach the importance of teamwork. Good programs and coaches teach children, teenagers and young adults the way to compete- with passion, skillful play, teamwork, sportsmanship and respect for themselves and others. Players will be offered opportunities for advancement based on their desires and on performance in tryouts and preceding playing seasons. Coaching will be volunteer-based, with a professional training and/or coaching component provided by a club approved trainer or coach.

Premier Program
The purpose of our ‘Premier Program’ is to provide an educational and competitive environment that consistently produces the most mentally, physically, technically, and tactically accomplished players in Ohio South, USYSA Region II, and the nation, recognized for their superior quality of play, knowledge and ability to articulate the game, sportsmanship, and passion for the sport. The players will be developed to compete at the highest levels of high school and college play. The program will be coached and managed by professionals who will provide the elite soccer development experience for talented soccer players and athletes, consistent with age appropriate expectations and commitment levels.
