More about Kent United
In 2009 the independent coaches of FC Kent Select joined together to unify the teams under the Kent United banner. The coaches and teams of Kent United still maintain those cherished independent qualities, but with a stronger commitment to providing affordable competitive soccer for the community. The program blossomed from 8 teams for the 2009-2010 season to 19 in 2011-2012, with an anticipated 24 in 2012-2013! For age groups not currently offered please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for potential team opportunities!
Kent United’s program is designed for the player seeking a higher level of competition than is available in our recreational soccer leagues, without the greater time and financial commitments of premier soccer.
While select is a higher level of play and commitment, we stress maintaining balance between school, family life, other sports and keeping it fun - the foundation for a life-long love of the game.
Being a select coach can be very rewarding. Our coaches are qualified licensed volunteers who enjoy developing players and advancing their own level of knowledge through coaches training and licensing classes. They love soccer; that's why they coach! If you’re interested in coaching please contact email@example.com, we are happy to help in that process.
An added bonus, KYSA values continuing coach’s education, Kent United coaches can receive free licensing thru association-sponsored clinics or reimbursement for clinics outside the association (prior approval required).
