United DFC's mission is to promote and grow the sport of soccer in our communities, creating pathways and opportunities for players and volunteers to be involved in soccer for life.
In 2018, four soccer clubs of the Dartmouth, Cole Harbour and Eastern Passage areas merged under a new identity - United DFC. United DFC is a result of the Cole Harbour Soccer, Dartmouth Football, Dartmouth United Soccer and the Eastern Passage Soccer Clubs’ vision to create a club greater than any single club as they previously existed.
The originating clubs had a long history providing soccer programs in their communities and the United DFC will continue to provide a level of service that the players, families and communities have grown to know, value and expect. A prioroty is to 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 provides players with 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 the club is taking great care to implement the best practices from the member clubs and from across the country as we continue to build United DFC’s programs and policies.
The club logo, designed by soccer parent/graphic designer Brad Smith, is modern & clean with an aquatic splash, given Dartmouth’s reputation as the “City of Lakes” and Eastern Passage and Cole Harbour's proximity to the ocean.
Our colors are navy, white and electric green, and we proudly refer to ourselves as “United”!
