United DFC Employment Opportunity

ABOUT UNITED DFC
United DFC Soccer Club is a newly merged soccer club servicing over 2600 members of the Harbour East District in Dartmouth. United DFC was formed as a result of four (4) prominent clubs having the vision and willingness to create a club that would offer improved programming and support for its members.  One that would be better than any of the single clubs could provide on their own. The merged originating clubs included:
Cole Harbour Soccer Club, Dartmouth Football Club, Dartmouth United Soccer Club and Eastern Passage Soccer Club.

The originating clubs had a long history of providing soccer programs in their communities and United DFC has embraced that legacy as it continues to provide a level of service that the players, families and communities have grown to know, value and expect. United DFC strives to maintain a strong grassroots focused program for the learning, development and enjoyment of this beautiful game by all players, while at the same time supporting the aspirations of all players to develop to their highest potential.
United DFC offers our members the opportunity to play soccer from age 3 to senior at both the community and performance levels. Coaching and volunteer development is a priority and our club is taking great care to implement the best practices from the member clubs and from across the country as we build United DFC’s programs and policies.
