Program Descriptions + Player Pathway

At Chesapeake United, we make a conscious effort to place each individual player where he or she is best fit within the club.  We believe that every player has a place in our club and it is up to us to help each individual find that place.  The purpose of the Player Pathway is to help players, parents, and staff understand the current track for players of different ages, abilities, and desired levels of commitment. See the descriptions below for all four programs: Competitive, Advanced, Academy, and First Start.  For more specific information on each program and to register online, click the name of the program in blue.
