The WV United 08B club is a pair of brother teams:

This is competitive club that competed for the first time in Spring, WvUnited08BRed 2016, in the CCSL upper B bracket. The list of CCSL 08B brackets and results is here ; both of our teams competed in the upper B bracket.

The Red team will be playing in the bronze bracket this Fall; the white team will be playing in the copper bracket. We offer a competitive program that fosters individual player development as well as team building. The boys generally train together and often help each other out at games or tournaments.

If you are interested in trying out for our program, WvUnited08BWhiteplease contact Coach Bob O’Connor at rwoconnor@hotmail.com. We encourage prospective players to explore our program during one of our normal training sessions. Spending this time with us will give you a feel of how our team trains and operates, along with giving your son a chance to interact with the boys on our team. Parents are always welcome to stay and observe.
