Many of Guam’s national team players have moved on to successful collegiate-level stints at various NCAA Division I universities in the United States and others have moved on to professional careers and many more will follow the pathway created by the island’s trailblazing soccer athletes.
Most of Guam’s successful soccer athletes began here in Guam, playing in the incredibly popular Robbie Webber Youth Soccer League. Adult leagues also are popular, with more than 20 teams in the men’s league alone. Many teams also participate in futsal and beach soccer leagues. Women’s programs also are available, including the All-Girls League and the Women’s Leagues.
