Mission Statement


Compton United Mission Statement: Our Mission: Through the sport of soccer and the resources of US Soccer, develop a new generation of leaders who excel in all aspects of life: mentally, physically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally, to ultimately help develop our community into a model of social, economic and spiritual transformation. Compton United Soccer Club serves the area of greater Compton by bringing quality, competitive, sanctioned soccer to the inner-city. Historically this population has been virtually locked out of the US Soccer system as the US is the only country where soccer has been embraced as a suburban sport and priced out of the urban price range. The talent and determination are in place in the city and we are providing the structure and access to the system so these players may have the same opportunity as any other player. Athletic ► Academic ► Character ► Leadership ► Community CUSC focus on five stages of development; This wholistic approach fosters growth on and off the field developing leaders and a community not just soccer players.
