Philosophy & Objectives

Philosophy: Winning alone does not measure the success of a youth soccer program.  Individual player development is the key to a successful program.  Charlotte United is committed to the development of the individual.  Our goal is to help all our players reach their full potential, including an expected high standard of player attitude and behaviour both on and off the field.  If Charlotte United is unsuccessful in this, winning will not be an adequate substitute.

Objectives: The overall objective of the club is to provide a developmental system that is progressive in nature - beginning at U8 and culminating at U18.  The long term growth and enjoyment of each individual player is our primary goal.  Our system of player development is designed to ensure that by the time players reach the U18 level, they will have developed sound skills, tactical awareness and a thorough understanding of the game.
