Established in 1983, New River United is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing soccer opportunities for all ages and ability levels in the New River Valley. The club is run by a staff of four, a Board of Directors, and the many volunteers who contribute time and other resources. Currently the largest nonprofit organization in the area, NRU supports the activity of over 1500 members, including players from the U5 age group all the way through the adult league. Youth players can participate across a range of competition levels, and now, with the addition of winter futsal and the SWVA Elite training program, they can play year round. In May, NRU hosts its annual Summer Kick-Off Tournament, which is held on the beautiful Virginia Tech campus. With strong community support and successful programs, both the tournament and the club continue to grow each year.
