The LDC United Soccer Club is committed to providing a positive developmental environment that benefits the long-term development of the youth soccer player. Our club structure enables players of all abilities to love the game and experience the many life lessons it can teach.
This mission is accomplished by providing high quality coaching and playing opportunities. Young players improve most effectively when placed in a challenging but enjoyable training and playing environment with other motivated and talented players.
LDC United organizes strong competitive teams and provides a soccer training structure that produces high caliber players. Teams train together year round and participate in advanced leagues and tournaments.
The LDC United Coaching staff is composed of top professional coaches and highly qualified and successful non-professional coaches. Bill Becher is the Coaching Director of LDC United. Our coaches focus their efforts on a limited number of teams - usually one or two teams. Our professional coaching staff provides additional training to teams at all levels of the club.
LDC United teams are competitive in State, Regional and National levels. An LDC United team is formed at each single year age group. Additional LDC teams are formed if there are sufficient numbers of quality and committed players.
It is important to make a distinction within the LDC United team structure that a difference in commitment to soccer is expected. For our younger teams we do expect that soccer is a primary sport but recognize that other sports remain a critical part of their development. We encourage and expect participation in these other sports. Our younger teams may still train most of the year. It is recognized that breaks and diversity is important.
At Under 14 we expect soccer becomes a much higher priority. Players are expected to participate in the league, tournament and training activities of the team. Attendance at tournaments is expected. We acknowledge the high school season and plan accordingly. Any concerns or questions regarding the level of commitment expected should be discussed with the coach or our coaching director.
