The Desert United Soccer Club was founded in 1998. At that time four teams came together with a common goal to provide a quality soccer program at a competitive level for the youth of the Coachella Valley. We are a 501c3 organization and are centrally based in the city of Palm Desert, California. Our club is a chartered member of the California Youth Soccer Association.
From humble beginnings we have expanded to as many as 17 teams and currently have 10 teams. The club currently has 4 Gold level teams. All teams participate in the Coast Soccer League gaming circuit and call the Palm Desert Soccer Park their home field. Our teams compete all over Southern California and provide a great representation of the talent that resides right here in the Coachella Valley.
Desert United’s coaching philosophy encourages the development of skills based on a graduated curriculum. The mixture of individual technical instruction, tactical instruction and group play varies with the age of the teams, but all facets of the game are addressed at appropriate points in the curriculum.
Desert United Soccer Club welcomes any soccer player with an interest in developing, learning, and strengthening their game. Whether your goal is to make your high school squad and/or to take it to the collegiate level, Desert United is a place you can gain the exposure to quality coaching, high level competition, and a great experience. DU is dedicated to providing the best possible soccer experience to all of its players.
