Coaching Corner Welcome to

Coaching Corner

Welcome to the South Carolina United FC Coaching Corner. We appreciate and applaud the loyalty and commitment our coaches demonstrate each week.

The purpose of the Coaching Corner is to improve each coach’s knowledge of the game and to educate all of our coaches on our common philosophy, foundation of curriculum, and ethical approach in all we do.  

Located on the SCUFC website, Coaching Corner is an on-line resource which provides our coaches with what we consider our best practices in developing youth soccer players.  Through Coaching Corner, we will also distribute information, and provide updates to coaches on player development, club details, and coaching education.  

If you are a registered coach of one of our Recreational, Jr. Academy or Select teams and require any information, please contact Lee Morris and provide him your team name, age group, and practice location.  Lee can be reached at

We hope you enjoy the format and convenience.

Recreational Referees

Only one referee will be assigned to any U8-U12 recreational match.   Additionally, please know we will not be assigning a referee to any U7 recreational match unless we have filled all U8 matches and above.  

As to the U7s, please understand that we want our coaches on the field at this age helping the players learn how to play the match and thus, if we do not have a referee available to cover any U7 match on Saturdays, we encourage the coaches to help teach the players the rules of the game by having the coaches officiate the match on their respective ends of the field.  As such, please understand that our preference is to assign a certified referee to all U12 matches first, then all U11s, then all U10s and then all U9s.  Once all U9 matches are filled, we will then proceed to assign either certified or non-certified referees to all U8s recreational matches. If and only if all U8 matches are assigned a referee will we proceed to have a referee assigned to a U7 match. 

U14 through U19 recreational matches will only have a center referee
