Unionville-Milliken Soccer Club continues to evolve yet remains focused as a community-based organization striving to have each participant experience the combination of discipline, ethics and teamwork. The Club elects a thirteen-member Board of Directors at its AGM and meets on a monthly basis to conduct Club business. For the past five years, UMSC has built a solid foundation of growth in the local area.  We have elected an enthusiastic and experienced executive committee who will lead UMSC and the community into the next level of the sport.

Over the years, UMSC has seen, a tremendous increase in the membership and demand for soccer programs. This can be attributed to the excellent support the UMSC receives from volunteers and local businesses, as well as to the quality of the delivered programs. UMSC in turn has retained the services of professional technical staff and an office manager to assist with the increasing demand.

Within the 2011 soccer season, the total membership exceeded 3000 players (outdoor and indoor), 250 Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Team Managers, 75 Referees and approximately 350  dedicated volunteers in total.
