About the UWS League

United Women’s Soccer (UWS) is a national 2nd tier league with regional conferences in the United States and Canada. The league prides itself on providing high level competition for top current/post collegiate players, aspiring/former professionals & international stars.

The season takes place from May through July, culminating in a national championship. UWS focuses on operating with professional standards, and is comprised of like-minded clubs aiming to invest in the women’s game.

In 2020, United Women’s Soccer introduced UWS League 2.

HISTORY

United Women’s Soccer (UWS) was formed in 2015 under the belief that there is a gap in the development of the female soccer player between the collegiate game and the professional and international game. Immediately after the USL W-League folded, a dedicated tier two league was needed.

Founded by teams formerly playing in the W-League and WPSL, United Women’s Soccer began play in May of 2016 under USASA sanctioning. The league has grown from 2 conferences of 11 teams to 25+ teams divided into 4 conferences and maintains its commitment to advancing women’s soccer.

UWS LEAGUE 2

United Women’s Soccer (UWS) League 2 is scheduled to launch in the summer of 2020. League Two is a new developmental pathway for players in the U20-U23 age group. UWS League Two will be under the umbrella of the national pro-am league and is the official league for UWS reserve teams. The season will run during the summer and teams will play matches in a regional-friendly format.
