AFU Recreational Soccer Program (U4+) For Beginners and Recreational Players

  

Program Overview

Fun, Family, Foundation & Fitness

We have a great history of success developing players. Many of today's 1,000 Academy Players and 2,000 Select Players at AFU came through this Recreational Programs. Additionally, there are many players playing collegiate soccer or who have graduated from collegiate rosters with decorated playing careers who began back in these local recreational programs!

Our seven step program was designed by professional coaches combining their years of experience with countless hours of research. It is specifically designed so each age group is provided the correct environment and instruction to reach their full potential in a fun, safe manner.  (*** When possible age groups will be in single year groupings)

Volunteers

Volunteers – How can I help?

Atlanta Fire United (AFUSA) needs volunteers. Our league is run by volunteer coaches, assistant coaches and team managers. How can you help? You can be your team’s volunteer as a field marshal.Assist on field day or help your coach by staying late with the child whose parent is a little late arriving after practice. Remove the trash that your team leaves behind after a practice or a match. As always, you can offer positive ways to improve our Club or the facilities. Finally, AFUSA is always looking for corporate sponsors. If you have an interest in helping, contact our league director at judas.kinchen@atlantaunitedsoccer.com.
