Skyline United

Southwest Virginia's Finest on One Team

 

 

The Skyline United Teams are formed each year for U15 boys and girls separately.  The teams will train with high level coaches and compete in a regional or nationally recognized Tournament event.  This provides high achieving Skyline League players the opportunity to train in an elevated playing environment and work with professionally trained coaches.  The team is formed of the best players in the league at the U15 age group with selection being done through a club nomination process and player ID event.  Only one team is selected in each gender forming a group from the “best of the best” players in the league.  Selection to this program is a unique honor and opportunity for players in the Skyline League.

All top brackets at the Jefferson Cup will be played on synthetic turf fields. Combining the nation’s top level competition with the nation’s top natural grass fields and synthetic fields makes the Jefferson Cup the #1 choice for March tournament competition.”
