2004 SF United Glory

team picture

SF United Glory is a Gold travel team playing in the NorCal premier league. Glory was essentially a new team in the Fall 2016 season as many of its original players "aged up" due to the US Soccer Federation birth year mandate. Despite most players having never played with each other and for some, playing in new positions, the Glory players worked hard and bonded together as a team early on, leading them to finishing in the top of their bracket that year in the Silver travel division of the Cal North League. For the Fall 2017 season, Glory moved to the NorCal premier league, finishing second in its Silver travel division. Glory competed in the State Cup tournament and finished in first place in Round 1, and went on to play in the semi-finals. For the Fall 2018 season, Glory has advanced to the Gold division. Glory also plays in at least 2 tournaments per year (semi-finalists in the 2017 MVLA Bay Area Winter Cup; champions in the 2018 SF Evolution Cup) and competes in the San Francisco Futsal League during the winter season, in which they won the championship in 2017 and took second place in 2018.

Glory's diverse roster consists of players from many different schools - both public and private - and from many different San Francisco neighborhoods. The players are hard-working, with a strong desire to continue to improve and compete at a higher level. Glory's players understand that games are won and lost by the efforts of the entire team, not just by any one player. They are supportive of one another and know how to have fun. New players are welcomed with open arms and immediately "adopted" into the SF United family.

Glory is led by Coach Mike. In addition to developing each player's soccer skills, Coach Mike also reinforces the importance of hard work, sportsmanship, respect, and playing together as a team. He challenges the players, yet understands the value of having fun, too.

The club is looking to add players of this age to continue to strengthen the foundation of all 3 teams at this age, especially with the transition into high school for most girls.
