Throughout the year and in addition to our Premier and Select programs, NWUnited offers a variety of free or low-cost soccer training and play for U7-U10 players as a part of our Young Players Training Academy. These programs focus on younger players, but we encourage older players (U11-U13) who are not already involved in select soccer to join us for many of these programs. Call and we can discuss. 360-466-4152 or email. In addition, throughout the year, U10-U18 players may come and practice with one of our teams to see if select soccer might be right for them.
