About WPU

Elevate Your Game!

One of the Largest Competitive Travel Programs in South Florida

The West Pines United Futbol Club (WPU) is based in Pembroke Pines, Florida and is one of the largest competitive travel programs in South Florida. With a professional coaching staff and their strong history of player development, West Pines United is a nationally recognized program that has become a club for champions. Our players annually use their development skills to achieve numerous accomplishments including USA national team selection, Olympic Development Program (ODP) selection, College selection, and thus achieve many team championships from State Cup, SE Regional Champions, to Atlanta Cup, Florida Cup, Disney Showcase, and many more. This is a result of our coaches focusing on player development including technical skills, tactical skills, conditioning, nutrition, and, not team accomplishments.

The West Pines United Futbol Club (WPU), offers a year-round competitive soccer environment for players 8-19 years of age who are interested in taking their game to a higher level. The club’s main focus is on individual player development within the framework of team building. Player placement is largely determined at our annual try-outs with the competitive level of each team determined during pre-season training.

Comprised of Advanced, Competitive and Academy teams, WPU provides top-level training and coaching in all phases of the game. Teams compete in some of the Nation’s Premier leagues according to their respective performance levels such as, the Super Y-League, the Southeast Region III Premier League, the Florida State League & the local area’s premier program. Teams also vie for top honors in the State’s Championship Series – the Florida State Cup, Region Cup & President’s Cup.

West Pines’ teams are frequent competitors in major tournaments across the country such as the Disney Showcase, Orange Classic, Jefferson Cup, Atlanta Cup, Raleigh Cup & the Score at the Shore. Advanced teams also compete in U.S. Club Soccer’s State, Regional and National championship series. Florida’s lesser tiered tournaments provide ample opportunities for all teams to compete each season.

Consisting of 7 – 9 year olds, our Academy teams play in the local FLUGSA league in the 6v6 small-sided format. When possible, they also compete in various 3v3 and 5v5 tournaments offered throughout the region. Our youngest Academy members (5 -7), are taught the game with the use of FUN activities in preparation for when they can advance to competitive play.

All players, 12 years old and above, are encouraged to attend the Olympic Development Programs (ODP), of both US Youth Soccer and Super Y-League. Numerous WPU players have been selected to State, Regional & U.S. National team pools through these programs. Many WPU players have realized their dreams of furthering their soccer careers at the college level and a select few at the professional level.

If you are serious about your future in soccer and would like to take your game to the next level, then being a member of the West Pines United Futbol Club is where you want to be.
