Central Virginia United (CVU) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), athletic and educational organization that fosters the physical, mental, and emotional growth and development of all participants through the sport of soccer at all levels. CVU is affiliated with the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) and its youth soccer division, the United States Youth Soccer Association (USYSA) through the Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA).
CVU is proud of our 40+ year commitment to providing soccer camps, teams, and leagues all with the goal to make soccer fun and instill in young players a lifelong passion for the sport. We currently have over 1,000 members and we encourage participants of all ages and experience levels to come out and join us!
Our Travel Program is the highest level of soccer in central Virginia and competes in the Skyline Club Soccer League (SCSL) and Blue Ridge Soccer League (BRSL) with the top team in each age group and gender playing in the SCSL Premier Division. Classic Level Travel Teams are placed in the appropriate Classic Division as determined by the CVU Directors of Coaching. The Travel Program begins at the U11 age group through U18 or U19, and is run by CVU’s full time Executive Director, Raymond Ford.
We also offer an Academy Program (U9 & U10) and a Futures Program (U6-U8). These programs are designed to properly prepare players technically for the highest level programs at older age groups (Travel and College). This is done through our player development model, licensed staff, and competitive festival game days in our region of the state.
Our grassroots Developmental Recreation Soccer Program is for ages U5 through U18. The focus of the ‘Rec’ Program is to develop a love for the game, have fun, and learn the basics of soccer. Like most recreational soccer programs, the CVU ‘Rec’ Program is coached by volunteer coaches, while the program itself is managed by the professional soccer staff of CVU.
