Fall '18 Development Program!
We offer the best developmental training possible with the oversight of by LC United Coach Daniel Dobson, who is also the recruiting coordinator and assistant coach at the University of North Texas (UNT). He had a brilliant college career 2001-2004, helping Memphis to a top 10 placement in NCAA Division 1. Coach Daniel then went on as an MLS player, a Discover Pick for the Kansas City Wizards (now Sporting Kansas City) and also played for Chivas USA. Coach holds a USSF National C License and has assisted forming other clubs in the area. The US Soccer Federation focuses on the development of elite youth players as a part of the pathway to becoming a professional player. There is not a better qualified coach for development of all players on all levels in recreational soccer. All for a fraction of the fee's of most academy's and clubs would charge:
Development Member Fee: $45/mo. (program runs year around*, no contract)
Per Practice Fee: $15 (on a per practice basis, pay at the field)
Participants are required to pay monthly development fee's and purchase the practice jersey of the league ($45). No practices in June, however deep camp discount available to members. Additional practices, indoor and street soccer play available to members. Pay per practice is available, but is higher cost overall, i.e. October 2018 has 5 practices or $75 if all attended paid by practice. Street Soccer is $5 per session.

LC United offers young players a developmental experience above the challenge of playing recreational soccer and strive to supplement recreational play, NOT to replace it. The focus of LCU is on development and not on competitive play or selecting a league champion. Players wishing to play on a more challenging level, this allows an outlet for them for performance based soccer.
Much like other associations in North Texas, we are striving to improve the development and overall experience of each child within our program. What has been discovered is that by doing so, the overall experience of every child is improved. Recreational soccer should remain fun while allowing those children that are developing faster a venue to enhance those abilities, but not take on the demands of a total performance based program at a younger age. Parents and players will always have the option to leave the association and join an academy elsewhere. However, there can be many pitfalls in those types of organizations, such as over exerting the young player physically and mentally, and taxing parents financially.
With the LC United program, your child will be given the expert training and opportunity to thrive while enjoying the fun and camaraderie of their recreational team. However, they are only adding one practice to their regular schedule. Team practice conflict? LCSA asks coaches to recognize the playing potential of the player and what they can bring to the team, and should excuse development players from practice conflicts. Some coaches encourage the entire team to join and then hold only one team practice.
These groups are developmental only. Players must come to an open practice and demonstrate the aptitude to succeed in the player development program. Where your level of play is currently is not a factor, the aptitude to excel is. We give you an honest evaluation at your first practice if this program is for your player.
Your player deserves the best and we plan on delivering it. Come to the practice or contact us for more info or visit.
