Player Development. Character. Leadership.

TUMFC Leadership Award

Thunder United Metro FC is excited to offer the Thunder United Metro FC Leadership Award! This award is given to one U13-U16 player near the end of the spring season.

Selection Process 

To be considered for the award, a player must be nominated by his or her coach. Those nominated will go before a small board of local business leaders from our community to answer questions on leadership, character, and share their experiences as a leader on and off the soccer field. The board members will confer and select a winner.

YMCA Camp Kern

As a reward, the winner of the Thunder United Metro FC Leadership Award will have the opportunity to attend a week long “Survivor” camp at YMCA Camp Kern! This camp uses various challenges that will test your ability to work as a team, lead, and compete! To learn more about Teen Survivor camp click here.


The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly. —Jim Rohn
