What is Santa Monica United FC?

Santa Monica United FC is the number one and largest soccer school on the Westside of Los Angeles and prides itself on its strong coaching staff and developing youth soccer players in the competitive soccer circuit. All 39 SMU club teams play in the Coast Soccer League and various statewide and national elite tournaments throughout the soccer calendar year. The objective and end goal is to improve players’ soccer abilities, teach life skills and build friendships and bonds that will last a lifetime. As the teams advance in age and experience, the end goal is to position players to be capable of playing soccer at the next level, primarily through collegiate opportunities.

At SMUFC, we embrace the fact that we live in a city that is culturally and racially diverse and we want our club to reflect this diversity. We expect our club to be made up of young athletes from all socioeconomic sectors of our society. Our reach extends from Santa Monica to other areas of the city of Los Angeles where we work with various youth organizations to find young boys and girls who embrace the game of soccer who do not have the means to participate in a professionally run soccer club without some assistance. Our club uses its non-profit tax-exempt status to raise funds to enable participation across all levels of our society and to provide an environment of soccer excellence to all of our members.

Free SMU Friday Clinics RETURN Sep. 15!

 

Starting Friday 9/15, the “Fall Edition” of the free SMU Clinics return for a 10-week program open to all SMU players (only) ages U9-U14.

This season, we’re trying something new!  The clinic will have two different programs; one aimed at the U9-U11 ‘Youngers’ age groups and the other aimed at the U12-U14 ‘Olders’ age groups.  There will usually be 3 coaches assigned to each clinic, a head coach for each age group plus a floating assistant.

The ‘Youngers’ program will focus on developing individual fundamental skills (passing, receiving, dribbling, finishing, general ball control) so that players become much more ‘comfortable’ on the ball.  This fall, the entire 10-week ‘Youngers’ program will focus on 1v.1 moves!  10 weeks, 10 different moves, mano-a-mano!

The ‘Olders’ program will also focus on developing technical skills with an emphasis on how those skills apply in tactical, team-oriented situations.  This fall, the ‘Olders’ 10-week program will focus on finishing (power, placement, headers, volleys, bent, driven, dipped, curved, from crosses, from inside the box, from outside the box, etc.).  Goals change games, so the intention this fall is to help all the players in attendance to score more goals, in as many different ways possible.

Start date:           Friday 9/15

End Date:            Friday 11/17

Location:             Santa Monica Airport Park

Time:                   5:30-7pm

Eligibility:            SMU Players ONLY; Girls & Boys ages U9-U14
