Lowcountry United Announce Partnership with Ladson Youth Organization

7 Nov 2018

Lowcountry United is excited to announce our official partnership with Ladson Youth Organization. This partnership will bring youth development soccer to Ladson Youth Organization.

Lowcountry United was founded with the simple mission of providing soccer opportunities in our local community. LUFC has provided this platform with our senior team being involved in the United Premier Soccer League which highlighted the amazing local talent that the lowcountry has to offer. The founding and growth of Lowcountry United has been due to the continued commitment & focus on providing opportunities for local players to compete at the next level by providing semi pro soccer in the lowcountry. Through this partnership starting for the spring 2019 season, Lowcountry United will work with Ladson Youth Organization to provide development soccer at Tom Conley through Lowcountry United Development Academy. The focus will be introduce and provide individual & team development training along with local competitive youth  league matches. Through this program we hope players will enjoy the benefits and fun of  playing the beautiful game which will allow them further opportunities to progress into more advanced teams and even be selected to play for the Lowcountry United senior team. This opportunity will provide a true players development pathway that will allow a one club structure for overall player development.

Ladson Youth Organization at Tom Conley Park has been a venue for kids with big dreams for more than 50 years. Located in Summerville Ladson Youth Organization has seen tens of thousands of players develop a passion for sports on these fields. Tom Conley Park as it better known has helped children learn imperative life lessons in sportsmanship, competitiveness, teamwork, courage & hard work. LYO is committed to offering safe, fun and family friendly athletic programs in order to continue to serve the local community.

“This is an exciting opportunity! The Summerville/Dorchester/Ladson community has limited academy opportunities for players to play and develop. This partnership allows us and LYO to provide a program that offers a true player development pathway to the LUFC senior team while allowing players to learn and develop individually through this amazing sport all the while keeping to the principals of LYO to provide a fun and safe space through the power of athletic programs. We look forward to getting a wonderful solid foundation in place with LYO and growing this program into an elite local academy.” Alan Bahadori | Executive Director Lowcountry United
