Kensington Soccer Club is thrilled to announce that it has joined the United Philly family of soccer clubs that also includes the Anderson Monarchs, Germantown Soccer, and Fairmount Soccer.

This official announcement solidifies a relationship that has already proved beneficial to KSC and the United Philly Soccer family. Last summer, Kensington Soccer joined other United Philly organizations in a one-day 7v7 tournament. KSC coach Ivan Vivar is already leading United Philly's U19 boys team, a group which included many KSC players, as well as kids from other clubs and from around the city. Other KSC youth play on the U15 and U17 UPS teams. As our relationship grows stronger, we hope to see more of our talented, committed players take advantage of the opportunities this partnership provides.

United Philly Soccer is designed to provide a travel soccer pathway for all boys and girls starting with the age level of U13 through the high school years. The member clubs continue to provide their own soccer programs, including toddler, youth intramural, after-school programs, intramural academy, and intramural leagues at the junior, intermediate and senior levels, as well as their own boys and girls travel teams for the U12 and younger age groups.

The United Philly Soccer partnership will not only benefit the travel soccer experience for our middle school and high school players; but will provide enhanced experiences for the intramural and recreational league members of the club through cooperation and coordination of our soccer programs. United Philly's stated goal is to provide a positive travel soccer experience for as many players as possible who have the passion and commitment for our great sport and who represent the tremendous racial, ethnic, and social diversity of our various neighborhoods.

Kensington Soccer Club remains dedicated to uniting and advancing the broader Kensington community with high-quality soccer and youth development programs for everyone, regardless of ability to pay. Kensington Soccer Club brings together youth from all backgrounds and incorporates academic enrichment, health & nutrition education, and violence prevention into all its’ programs. We're proud to be a member of the United Philly Soccer family!
