FC United Satellite Community Program

FC United Satellite Program

This program is specifically intended for rural community programs and non-metro high school communities only.

The primary objective of our satellite program is to extend soccer opportunities to satellite communities where demographics often make it challenging to provide their soccer players and coaches with a realistic, sustainable and uniform development path. We realize that the primary driver for these communities is to help prepare and strengthen their player pool as they eventually migrate into their high school programs.

The primary objectives we will strive to extend include:

  • Maintain a program that provides avenues for players to compete in development-appropriate levels as they mature.
  • Maintain a price-point that keeps it affordable along with a greater value by partnering with a sustainable organization that will support the varying needs of the players.
  • Provide a higher level of knowledge and preparation for coaches, through the implementation of the FC United curriculum, coach education, along with parent education and organizational structure.

The initiatives of the FC United Satellite Program include the following:

  1. An established curriculum and coaching platform that outlines an age-relevant educational pathway for players at various ages.
  2.  Satellite Coach training from within the community leadership (required)
  3. Provide an overarching structure that will streamline and minimize operational expenses for families and players, as opposed to a community stand-alone program, which would require significant administrative expense and other organizational challenges.
  4. Potential inclusion in games and events (development-appropriate) which align with other FC United teams, and our club calendar of events.


9U-10U – 10 players min for team entry

11U-12U – 12 players min for team entry

13U-15U – 14 players min for team entry


Players participating in our program understand that they are a part of one unified program at FC United. Roster support between coaches and teams is expected when needed.

Players identified and invited to participate in club events will in good faith manage their calendars to ensure they are prioritizing these key club events. These will take priority over regular league games, scrimmages, and other club activities.
