Who Are We?


Carmel United Soccer Club is committed to providing activities through our Inhouse Recreational, Travel, and Academy programs that offer both social and physical development for children of all skill levels in a supportive and safe environment. We shall encourage and promote good sportsmanship, athletic development, and community involvement. Our goal will be to provide age-appropriate training in a positive development environment while maintaining a fun and enjoyable experience. ​​

Our Travel program will provide a higher level of play for more committed players where teams will be afforded the opportunity to play in competitive leagues. In conjunction with the Carmel Central School District, we strive to continually feed players from our Travel program into the Carmel High School soccer program, including George Fischer Middle School Modified soccer, as well as Junior Varsity and Varsity teams. 

Carmel United will always strive to operate to the best of our ability within the context of the following principles:

  • To enhance player self-esteem, confidence, emotional development, and overall character
  • To always put the best interest of the player above all others.
  • To provide equal access to the appropriate developmental programs for both boys and girls.
  • To maintain a balanced perspective on the outcome of games and sportsmanship.
  • To assure that all adults associated with the program are exemplary role models of sportsmanship, leadership, and support.

Founded in 1980, Carmel United Soccer Club (of New York) is a registered 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to soccer. As a not-for-profit, our board members are not paid. We are not a school or town sponsored program, but our players predominantly come from within the Carmel Central School District. The Club offers a competitive travel program for ages 8 through HS and an inhouse/rec program for ages 3 through 13. We are committed to the training of our players to prepare them for high school level competition and beyond.

The Board of Directors meets on the 4th Monday of each month via Zoom. If there is an issue that you would like to place on the agenda, you must email us at at least 14 days in advance of the meeting with the details. If your request is approved, you will be contacted with a time and link to join the meeting. We do not use Board meeting time to hear feedback and/or opinions on resolutions and decisions the Board has already decided on. 

If you have an issue that you feel the Board should be made aware of or would like to provide feedback, please email and your message will be distributed, as appropriate. We may reach out for more information.

Our Annual General Meeting takes place at the regularly scheduled June board meeting. At the AGM, elections are held for elected board positions and proposed changes to By-Laws are voted on, if necessary. Nominations and proposed changes must be received at two weeks prior to the meeting to be considered.
