West End Soccer Strong

Ages 4-10

Tuscaloosa United Soccer Club’s West End Soccer Strong Program provides young and new players ages 4-10 an opportunity to learn the game of soccer. Meeting twice a week, players will learn soccer fundamentals and team play in a fun and safe environment. Practices and games will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

This program is coed and led by volunteer coaches. The number of children registered, their ages and gender will determine the teams and age divisions. We make every effort to ensure all teams are equal in number of players, ages and gender. We reserve the right to change the format due to numbers, age, or gender. All practice times and game times are the same for every team in an age group, with few exceptions. We are not able to honor special requests.


  • Tuesdays and Thursdays at McDonald Hughes Community Center
  • Times: 6:00pm - 7:00pm
  • Dates: September 7 - November 2
