New Field Development & Expansion Update - March 20, 2019

Mount Pleasant, S.C. (March 20, 2019) Update - We are pleased to announce that our Club cleared its final hurdles with the Charleston County Board of Zoning Appeals last week to allow us to break ground on our field complex at Guerin’s Bridge Road, and we are excited to move forward with a planned opening of fall 2019! We are also upgrading the playing surfaces and irrigation at fields in the Southern/Central area of Mt Pleasant so that they will be in prime playing condition by this summer. We are thankful and look forward to our continued relationship with the Town of Mt. Pleasant and their support through field space.  We believe that this combination of facilities across our Club footprint will best serve our membership and local players for the long term. Best of luck to all of you who are playing this weekend in our largest ever tournament and thank you all for supporting our club, local businesses, and communities and participating in the best youth sports event in the Lowcountry!

Mount Pleasant, S.C. (Sept. 5, 2018) - We are excited to announce that we are developing new field space to meet the needs of the club’s growth in the Charleston region.

Scheduled for completion in 2019, the first phase of the Guerins Bridge Soccer Complex will house four new fields, a pavilion, club office and parking lot. Additional field expansion to an existing facility in the Old Village of Mount Pleasant will help make way for Sweet Feet, a new recreational program for 4-7 year-olds.   

 “These projects are important because they give our club long-term field space in the central Mount Pleasant area as well as the ability to build our own complex at Guerins Bridge” said United Soccer Academy Club Executive Director Matt Job. “Since our tournament players come from a wide geographic area, we also expect to attract new visitors to experience the area’s wonderful hospitality.”

The first phase of the Guerins Bridge Soccer Complex will be located on 12 acres at the corner of U.S. Highway 17 and Guerins Bridge Road. In addition to the new complex, United Soccer Academy currently holds programs at 10 locations across Mount Pleasant, James Island and downtown Charleston. Current boys and girls programs range from tournaments to leagues and training for juniors between the age of 4 and 18.
