Santa Monica United Soccer Club
Santa Monica United Football Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to youth soccer. We promote a healthy lifestyle for young athletes in a competitive environment. We encourage our athletes to pursue the same level of excellence in academics and all of their other endeavors.
We teach our young athletes about character, sportsmanship, fair play, teamwork and competitiveness. We teach them about winning with humility and losing with dignity.
At SMU FC we embrace the fact that we live in a city that is culturally and racially diverse and we want our club to reflect this diversity. We expect our club to be made up of young athletes from all socioeconomic sectors of our society. Our reach extends from Santa Monica to other areas of the city of Los Angeles where we work with various youth organizations to find young boys and girls who embrace the game of soccer who do not have the means to participate in a professionally run soccer club without some assistance.
Our club uses its non-profit tax-exempt status to raise funds to enable participation across all levels of our society and to provide an environment of soccer excellence to all of our members. All of our coaches are professionals with credentials from the United States Soccer Federation. The club is run by a board of volunteers along with considerable help from the parents of our athletes.
