About United Women’s Soccer 

The United Women’s Soccer organization (UWS) is a pro-amateur women’s league that allows former and current college players to stay in top shape and continue to play competitively against the best of the best in the off-season. UWS provides high level competition for college players, aspiring and former professionals, and international stars. 

The UWS is comprised of teams in U.S. and Canada, and the talent these players bring to the league is not far off from the NWSL. The UWS provides high level competition for college players, aspiring and former professionals, and international stars.

The overarching goal of the league is to achieve equality of opportunity for women’s soccer. In a time where there are several professional and amateur leagues for men’s soccer across North America, there is a huge gap that exists between the college and professional ranks on the women’s side. UWS fills that gap by providing a pathway to pro for the amateur player.
