Park Valley United FC is the result of a successful merger in December of 2013 of two long-standing soccer clubs with a history of 20+ years serving the youth in the west metro area:
Golden Valley Phoenix Soccer and St Louis Park Soccer Association.
Our mission at PARK VALLEY UNITED FC is to foster the development of local youth through the sport of soccer. We are dedicated to providing our participants with a fun, high quality soccer experience that encourages sportsmanship and a love of the game. With top coaching, excellent facilities and a year round program each player will have the potential to reach his/her maximum level of performance. PARK VALLEY UNITED FC provides players with a complete player development opportunity.
The entire soccer community is sadden with the news that the search has been called off. Please follow the link below to the FB page that has been setup to honor Damian and Evan https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/302383249916629/
The best soccer players in the world Messi, Iniesta, Ronaldhino, Falcao developed their creative skills playing soccer on the streets and parks in their neighborhood. Much like pond hockey or street basketball skills and creativity are nurtured and best developed in an environment where kids can experiment new skills at their own pace and under no pressure. In Brazil for example, the so called "peladas" or pick up soccer are viewed as a way for all players of all ages to come together and celebrate the beautiful game.
All over the world kids the same age as those at PVU call their friends every afternoon for friendly pickup games to pretend they are soccer superstars playing a World Cup Final.
At Park Valley United FC we are no different and I would like to encourage of all us to continue building a community environment that encourages Free Play. By doing so we will become a better club and kids will continue to improve. Remember those Sandlot days? The days you could just knock at your friend’s house and simply go play ball at the park? We will bring those back!
We are inviting all players ages 5 and up including parents to come play every Friday night starting May 9th at Louisiana Oaks Park from 6:30pm to 9pm and celebrate the game we all love. So grown-ups, it's time to dust off your cleats. There will be music, inflatables and food. All the things we need to have lots of fun during the summer.
Please help us spread the word around to all your players, parents and friends.
When: Every Friday night starting May 9 from 6:30pm to 9:00pm
Where: Louisiana Oaks
What to bring: cleats, shin guards (if desirable) and water
Who: 5 and up. Grown-ups are welcome. There will be pick up soccer for adults
I am looking forward to see you all out there!
For the love of the game,
We are excited to announce the tryout dates for the 2015 Summer Traveling Season. As you know, tryouts are pivotal to our team selection process as well as monitoring the development of our players.

Please take a moment to review your players tryout dates and make the necessary arrangements to attend both. We appreciate your continuous support and we will see you soon for our April practices. Thank you!
