About Us

Southwest United Sports Club (SWU) strives to provide the highest caliber of training and competition to youth soccer players in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. SWU players have many opportunities to advance their game, including instruction from highly qualified coaches, specialized training with our Technical Directors, goalkeeper training and tournament participation throughout Alberta, Canada, and the United States. The coaches of Southwest United continuously upgrade their coaching skills through the National Coaches Certification program (NCCP), Canadian Soccer Association licensing, and guest coach seminars. Five SWU coaches have Provincial B or higher licensing and most coaches have many years of coaching and playing experience.

High quality coaching contributes to Southwest United’s history of success in provincial and national competitions. The club’s crowning achievement came in 2008, when the SWU U18 boys' team won the national championship.  Meet the SWU Coaching Staff
