Shenandoah Valley United (SVU) exists to promote and enhance the game of soccer for the youth of the Central Shenandoah Valley and to encourage the healthy development of these players.

Philosophy of Play 

Over-arching the development structure is the Philosophy of Play, providing a tool for teaching the game, for evaluating player strengths and areas of improvement, and for painting the picture of how the game should be played.

Offered Programs

SVU offers all levels of play from the recreational player who is out to enjoy the game to the premier player who is looking to play at the highest competitive levels. SVU works to ensure that all Valley youth who want to participate in soccer are not prohibited due to financial restraints.

  Recreational (U4 - U19):
The primary objective of the Recreational program is to enable players to learn the game of soccer in a fun and stimulating environment. The focus is on developing their skills to help them be the best soccer players they can be, while maintaining a healthy approach to competitive soccer.   Recreational soccer consists of the Mini Kickers, Recreation and Challenge.
  Travel (U11-U19):
The primary objective of the Travel program is to enable players to play the game of soccer in a more competitive and stimulating environment and prepare players for the next level whether it be high school or after. The focus is on developing their skills to help them be the best soccer players they can be, while maintaining a healthy approach to competitive soccer.  

Seasonal Clinic Program (U4-U15):
The primary objective of clinics is to build upon players skills and enjoyment of the game. A high level coaching clinician works in small groups to provide each player with supportive training. Clinics consist of Mini Kickers, Lil Strikers and Skills School.
