UNITED CLASSIC LEAGUE PHILOSOPHY
 
 
The UCL soccer philosophy is based on the belief that each player should be afforded the opportunity to compete at the highest level that their ability will allow against other teams looking for similar competition.  The UCL leaders believe in player development, character development, and establishing a common platform for teams to compete.  For the UCL, winning does not come at the cost of an individual or team's ability to grasp the bigger picture and prepare our players for the best chance to have a positive life-long appreciation for soccer.  
 
Winning in the UCL is simply one of the results that hard work, commitment, and collaboration produce with our level competition sturcture that the league will ensure is of the utmost integrity.
