Our objective at the New
River United is to educate, teach, and provide soccer at all levels.
From our Recreational League to our Premier Program, the ability to
offer soccer to everyone is what inspires us.
around for as long as we have, it is understood that without the
support of our community we would not have a club today. With 95% of our
organization being volunteer based, it is their hard work and
dedication that make it possible for quality soccer all the time.
1983, we have been continuously adapting, not only to improve the
soccer experience, but also to utilize innovative methods for
development, college track, coaching philosophies, and for opportunities
to play at the highest level possible. Along with our certified
coaching staff, strong leadership, and community support, NRU has become
the largest non-profit sports organization in the New River Valley.
we support the activity of over 1500 members; this includes
recreational players at the U5 age group, all the way up to our ever
demanding Adult League. Recently, NRU has partnered with Tech Sports
Plex, a multi-purpose sports facility, which allows for year round
play. With this new relationship, comes new mediums of playing; we are
now able to hold a winter futsal league, and even hold training sessions
during the cold months of the year.
addition to league play, we also host a tournament each year: the
National Bank Summer Kick-Off, held at the prestigious Virginia Tech.
Our tournament continues to grow each and every year.
almost three decades now we have seen that greatness can be
accomplished; whether it’s seeing the U5 bearcats score their first goal
or watching a 17 year old kid get signed to a Div-1 program, we strive
to offer this great sport at every level, for every player.
