UADL new soccer facility for youth.
We started UADL as a way to help grow the soccer community in the USA. Youth soccer, in this country, is looked at as a white affluent sport which isolates much of the underserved communities. We found that there are many children who are passionate about soccer but lack the required money to pay for the more reputable clubs. This left many talented kids on the sidelines or playing recreational soccer without the ability to be seen by scouts for a potential opportunity to play at the collegiate level. At the moment, the two coaches are Tykiem Booker and Imran Khan. Both have experienced growing up in less than fortunate conditions and have overcome obstacles to improve our lives. But, we both knew that if we had an organization like UADL to help us, we'd be in a better situation at an earlier age. UADL is designed to provide our youth with high level training for all level of players and also focus on developing each participant into better human beings and contributing members of society. Through our program, we will develop high level soccer athletes with self confidence to become future leaders in their communities. Any member of our organization is dedicating their time to improving themselves academically, physically as a player, and building self confidence. We want to help change the next generation through the love of soccer. We are looking to raise money to acquire our land to build our own indoor soccer facility that is open to all of those that believe in our values. The facility will be one of a kind in our country. One full size, 120x70 yd indoor soccer field with a fitness center and multiple class rooms for the members to concentrate on school work and study the game of soccer. We would like to get to the point were we could be the first true academy in the country. Your help would be greatly appreciated and goes a long way towards creating a real soccer academy in the United States which is long overdue. I know many people have many different ways to spend money. We are asking for any small amount to help change thousands of lives.+ Read More

Hey everyone. Been a little while, however, we're fresh off a tournament last week where the boys fought hard but came up just short of the final match for the championship. As we get into the final push of the school year, the boys are gearing up for the start of their spring season in 3 weeks. We still have some players who would love to play, but just cannot financially make it viable. Please help us help more players use soccer as a resource by donating and sharing with friends and family. We won't stop pushing forward.
Hi everyone! Hope everyone's new year is off to a great start. We, at UADL, have started our own YouTube channel to help show the progress and work that our players are putting in each week. Please share our information with those who you know so that we can open the doors to more youth in the future. Thank you!
Last night we had our first annual end of the year ceremony! It was so much fun and we have the best parents.
Our boys have finished their very first season of travel soccer. Throughout this season, they have learned many different life lessons and learned to come together as a team. Although we didn't win the league, the boys learned a lot and we competed every week. Sometimes winning isn't all that matters, it's about how much we learned and if we see clear improvements throughout the season. We also learned that we really would benefit from our own facility as we are continuing to grow and would love to have a place where the players could come after school to train and continuing learning together. Please continue to help us with our mission to grow by sharing this with friends and family and contributing anything you can. Thank you.
