The Fall 2016 season will see something new. It's the new age mandate from US Soccer. Bill Martin from FUSC has taken the time to create a video explaining the new rule and you can see it HERE. Please take a few minutes and watch it as it will answer any questions you may have about this confusing subject.

This Saturday (05/28/2016) Oconee United will have a food booth at Seneca Fest and we need your help. We will be using funds raised to help provide scholarships for deserving players, but we can not do this alone. We need a big turnout of players and parents to make this a success! We need parents to help out serving and cooking the food, preparing the plates and purchasing some of the supplies. The success of this fundraiser is up to you and all current and new parents are invited to attend.
Hey players, we need you to attend as well and show off your OUSA gear. Wear greens, camo, blues, whites, t-shirts, TURBO, misfits, it does not matter. Lets flood the streets of downtown Seneca with OUSA gear. It would really do wonders to promote our club. Thanks for all that you do and we are excited about this event!

May 28th OUSA will have a booth at the SenecaFest in downtown Seneca and parents and players need to make plans to attend. We will be selling food. This is a great opportunity to promote the club and to raise money for the club funds. We will be using funds generated by the fundraiser to sponsor players, so if you think you will need assistance, it would be a great way to show you are "ALL-IN" as Dabo would say.
We can also set up on May 27th during the SenecaFest car show, we will need additional volunteers to make this happen (maybe even one of the teams and parents). If you are interested please contact J Adams at 864-723-3110 or Cindy at 864-723-6421.

Hey kids! This summer, why not turn off the XBox, get off the couch, and come on out to our great fields at Keowee Elementary School to enjoy a fun-filled week of soccer. These camps will be run by Coach Joshua Steele, and will be filled with awesome instruction, competitive games, and most of all, fun playing the game we all love. Each day, in addition to valuable technical training on the ball, Coach Steele will be giving instruction on a variety of different topics including: dribbling, passing, finishing on goal, defending, and combination play. Coach Steele knows how long the summer is and that you need to stay sharp for the fall, whether you are playing Rec or Club soccer. Because of this he is offering not only one week, but two weeks of jam-packed soccer instruction and fun. We'll see you this summer!
This email was sent to us by a coach from FUSC.
"Coaches, The following email was send to some coaches last week. Please take a minute to read this! On Tuesday, February 9th at the MESA Complex we had a situation occur that all our club members need to be made aware of. As the 5:15pm session ended two of Under 10 age group boys were approached in the parking lot by a man they were unfamiliar with. He asked the boys if they wanted to enter his car to stay warm. Thankfully both boys refused and he drove away. Obviously this scenario is one that we must pay close attention to. The person in question is a white male ( possibly in his 40's with sideburns). We believe he is driving a Toyota Forerunner ( Beige/Gray). If any player, parent or coach witnesses any suspicious behavior please don't hesitate to step in and make sure that everything is ok. We would rather be safe than sorry. All of our coaches are reminded that it is important to stay with your players until they have all been picked up by someone that they are comfortable with. In addition we are asking our parents and coaches to remind the players that they should never get into a vehicle with someone that they don't know.
Hey guys! Do you remember Coach Brainy? He has given us his email address and he would love to hear from each of us. Click HERE to email Coach Brainy.
