The Futures Path

The League:

The EUSA Girls United League is designed for our youngest female players to get a chance to learn, grow and develop their technical skills in a fun, empowering, and player-centered environment! With a female-led coaching staff assisted by mentor coaches (talented players and aspiring coaches themselves), this is a great environment for girls to thrive! The program consists of one training session and one game session per week. This program focuses heavily on building a solid technical base of skills that our girls will build on for years to come. 

The Path:

The path for an Empire United player starts right here! 2014 and 2013 players who participate in the Empire Futures league may move on to form the newest EUSA U9 Club team for the 2021/2022 season. These teams participate in local and travel premier leagues and tournaments over the course of the year.
