Central Maine United

Central Maine United Soccer Club is a non-profit organization based in the Greater Waterville area. We have been formed to offer winter and spring soccer programs to any interested soccer players in the Central Maine Region.

The club is a joint adventure by our three local travel soccer clubs : Waterville Novas, Fairfield Bulldogs, and Winslow Travel Soccer.

In keeping with the desire of our parent organization, SoccerMaine, all three Travel clubs will continue to provide their Fall Travel soccer programs. During the winter and spring, CMU will provide premier and travel soccer programs for the area.

The board club is formed by two representatives of all four contributing clubs and is committed to providing playing opportunities for any interested player at the level of participation that most closely matches their ambition and ability level.

Our Travel soccer programs will continue to emphasize the involvement of the players from our local towns while at the same time welcoming the participation of any player from the surrounding towns of the Greater Waterville area.

Premier soccer is the next level of soccer for the most able Travel soccer players. It is a program which runs from December to June and encompasses indoor training and league play together with outdoor training and league play. This is an altogether higher commitment and therefore incurs further cost. Our travel teams are coached by volunteers. Our Premier soccer program welcomes any player in Maine who is interested in playing and does not emphasize town affiliation at all.

The formation of the club is our attempt to allow local players to develop and play at a level that best reflects their commitment and playing ability. It also allows players from any other town who want to experience Premier Soccer to have that opportunity. We emphasize a pyramid of soccer players with the maximum involvement being at the town rec soccer level, an intermediate level of involvement at the Travel soccer level and the most intense level of involvement being the Premier soccer level.

All our club board members and coaches have experience at all three levels of soccer and a keen interest in matching players aspirations to play with the level to which they are best suited.
