MIDDLE TENNESSEE UNITED
Middle Tennessee United
A joint program between Nashville United Soccer Academy, Tennessee United Soccer Club and
Murfreesboro Soccer Club.
Mission/Vision: Expand the opportunities for local players to train and play together in an affordable, competitive, positive
environment conducive to player development with like-minded organizations.
Goals: To create additional competitive training opportunities locally for excelling players, form successful teams for high level
showcase events, form teams for ‘trapped’ players at U15 and U19 and provide more exposure to potential college or
professional career opportunities.
This program will be led and overseen by the Director’s from each club involved in founding this program. These clubs
are TN United, Murfreesboro SC and Nashville United (NUSA)
All players involved in the program will be registered through TSSA with one of the three founding clubs.
U13 and U14 players from the three founding entities will be identified to participate in training sessions once a
month. There will be a team for U13 players and a team for U14 players. These training sessions will be two hours
long, conducted by DOC’s, or High Level Coaches in each Club, involve a scrimmage game and training locations will
rotate each month between the three organizations. In the Spring season a high level showcase tournament will be
selected and teams will be formed with players from the program to play in this showcase. These teams will be
rostered through one of the three founding entities using the TSSA guest playing policy.
U15 trapped players from all three clubs will train together in the offseason (with an assigned coach) and based on
player numbers form teams for games and tournaments. These teams will be rostered through one of the three
entities using the TSSA guest playing policy. They will train at a central location, one time per week and at their home
location one time per week.
U19 trapped players from all three clubs will train together (with an assigned coach) and based on player numbers
form teams for TSL games, friendlies and tournaments. These teams will be rostered through one of the three entities
through TSSA. Selected players will have the opportunity to tryout and play on the reserves teams for Inter Nashville
FC in the NPSL or Nashville Rhythm in the WPSL. They will train at a central location, one time per week and at their
home location one time per week.
Player Selection and Player Movement
The players for U13/14’s will be selected by the coaches at each individual club.
Throughout the year and based on training assessment players may move in and out of the program at U13/14.
From the pool of 24 players, 18 will be selected for the Showcase Tournament at U13/14.
U15 and U19 ‘trapped’ players will all get an opportunity to train and play games based on the number of players
between all three clubs.
Uniforms will be purchased by the program, used for games and kept with the program, not given to individual
players to keep.
Player registration costs with TSSA are already covered through each individual club.
There will be a $15 cost per player per session at U13/14 (This covers tournament fees, uniforms etc)
U15 players will pay monthly dues to the club who’s coach trains the players.
U19 players will pay monthly dues to the club who's coach trains the players. At U19 they will also pay registration
costs for that same club.
We are excited about this joint program and the relationship formed between like minded organizations in Middle
TN. More detailed information will be updated soon.
