Unity Select Sports Earns Gold Level Status in USA Football Program 

By Samuel Teets | Posted 1/18/2024

Unity Select Sports located in Central Texas has earned Gold Level status through USA Football’s League Excellence Program for the 2023 season.     

USA Football’s League Excellence Program is a way for youth football organizations to earn recognition for their commitment to raising operational standards and providing great environments for athletes and their families.    

Unity Select Sports offers tackle, flag and 7-on-7 football. According to Vice President Topher Rogers, who has been involved with the organization for four years, “Unity Select is paving the way for other organizations. We are creating a blueprint for using fundamentals as well as positive coaching to make a big difference.” 

The program achieved Silver Level status in 2022 before earning Gold Level status for the 2023 season.  

“Our volunteers are coaches nearly year-round to help make sure that each level is ready to go and with coaches appropriate for their levels,” said Rogers. “Being confident as a coach goes a long way.” 

In January 2023, the 12U Unity Select Sports team had the opportunity to play in Las Vegas for the National Championship. Fortunately, the team came home as champions.  

Besides the League Excellence Program, Unity Select Sports also makes use of USA Football’s extensive Grants Programs. Rogers explained, “Last year we received a grant and were able to get blocking pads to help these athletes on their paths to greatness.” 

Congratulations to Unity Select Sports on another successful year and for earning Gold Level status.
