"My daughter has played for West-Mont United Soccer for 9 years and counting. Thanks to the excellent coaching staff and training she has grown as a player while learning important life lessons- hard work, sportsmanship and teamwork. What started as a hobby has turned into a passion. As a bonus she’s made lifelong friends along the way."

"West-Mont made me a better player, teaching me new skills and traits all while allowing me to be involved with other activities. I play travel soccer, school soccer, school lacrosse and have my high school academics to worry about. My coach respected my time and commitments - and was able to find ways to keep me in the loop or catch me up on things I missed. I have been at this club for over 10 years, I have so many lasting friendships and life long memories that I will never forget."
